Pattern Description:

Package includes patterns and instructions to make aprons; apron A has contrast overskirt, ties, pockets and bias binding; apron B has contrast pockets, ties and strap; apron C has contrast flounces and ties; optional contrast bow for kids.

Pattern Sizing:

S-XL, This is a size Large

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Well no. I wanted one like "LisaCreated" made in 2010 so I combined the 3-tier apron with a bib/bodice.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

Yes. I didn't have any issues with the instructions that I read, but since I heavily modified the pattern I had to just wing lots of parts to get the result I wanted.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Super cute apron, that is easy to sew and I think makes an amazing gift. I LOVE the wide ties and really like the ability to play with contrast.

Fabric Used:

Quilting cotton from JoAnn. Bodice and pocket lining is broadcloth.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

As mentioned, I combined a bodice with view C. I also used bias tape to finish the edges of the flounce.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I want to sew one for myself!! I would recommend it and caution that the neckband is WAY too long.


My mom's Christmas gift - I hope she loves it and USES it -- rather than let it sit and be "pretty"

Oh I love this! I hope she uses it too! But as a Mom I can understand why she would want to keep something that her daughter her made cause it's so special!
