Pattern Description: There are 3 separate views of aprons.

Pattern Sizing:Small med or large. Not sure if it comes in larger sizes.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes I have twice uploaded the photos and they aren't here! I will try again.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the pockets and also the sash, giving it some shape. I liked using a contrasting fabric also.

Fabric Used:Cotton My son in law is from Texas. I like lizards so I chose this Southwest Native type design.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: My daughter is an XL so I added width to the pattern. I made this before, for my niece's wedding shower. I made that one in a red and black cherry blossom type print and then did the pocket and sash in a black, grey and white chevron print and had a great button on the back. This one, I bought fabric when I didn't have the pattern with me and didn't get enough of the brown to make the sashes out of it. Also I thought I had purchased brown double fold bias tape, and I did not. So here it is Dec 23rd and I did have brown single fold tape which was much harder to use. I ended up opening up the fold to stretch it over the edge and be able to stitch it down. It was putsy with me trimming more, and the width of the bias edge varies. I do not think it will be very noticeable and it is an apron so I "made it work". Because of the very narrow bias tape I had trouble having the stitching catch the back side always and then went to zig sagging it which I liked. I think the bias tape adds a nice contrast.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes and yes

Conclusion: Three very different apron patterns that are unusual and pretty.
