Pattern Description:
Aprons have pocket variations; aprons A, B, C are bib aprons; aprons D, E, F are half aprons; apron B has eyelet trim; aprons C, D have rick-rack trim; aprons E, F have contrasting waistband, tie ends, pocket band and ruffle.

Pattern Sizing:

S-XL, I cut a Large.

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

Pretty much.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

Yes. I had to do a little improvising as I was lining it but otherwise, all good.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I like and hate the ruffle. It's gorgeous finished but gathering that length of fabric is insane. I had to gather in small increments.


I dislike the ties and waistband being the same piece and cut on the bias. I am making a second one and did not cut them on the bias. I wish I had widened the waistband.

Fabric Used:
Quilting cotton from JA, lining is broadcloth

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I added a second pocket and left off the border on the top since I lined them. I also added a lining so I didn't have to do much seam finishing.

The pattern suggests taking the ruffle which is 6" wide and just doing a narrow hem. Uhmm, no thanks. I folded it half, RST and sandwiched it between the main fabric and the lining and stitched.

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

I am sewing a second one (gifts). It's a quick and easy pattern to sew and fun for a gift!

Conclusion:

A gift for a friend that I'm sure she'll love. I have enough fabric to make a matching one for her 2 year old!
