Pattern Description: Child's and Misses' Adjustable Aprons.
Both of these aprons were made as Christmas gifts for my great niece and nephew who love to bake with their Grandma. The tie straps are criss-crossed in the photos just to keep them neat looking.
Pattern Sizing: Size A: Child's S - L; Misses' S - L; the Race Car apron is a Size M and the Butterfly apron is a Size L.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? For the most part. I made a few minor changes to the trim on View B.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were well written.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? LIKES
- The two styles included in the pattern which made it easy for me to make one apron for a little girl (View A: with the gathered skirt) and another for a little boy (View B: with flat construction).
- The neck strap and back ties combined all in one which helps for fit adjustment as the child grows.
Fabric Used: All fabrics used are 100% cotton. I used John Deere green broadcloth for the pockets, armhole facings and ties on the Race Car Apron. These same elemets have been made with Andover Purple Dimples on the Butterfly Apron.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
- On the Race Car Apron, I left off the trim at the side edges and at the waist. Even though I had the yardage, I felt ribbon trim on the edge of the pockets was sufficient.
- With the exception of the mitered corner detail, I used the technique above for hemming the bottom and sides of both aprons.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Of course. Aprons are always nice to have, especially when they come in sizes for children AND adults.
Conclusion: In making this pattern, I found a lot of beginner concepts. Some of these include:
