Pattern:

McCalls 6476

Pattern Description:

Childrens’ aprons and hats

Pattern Sizing:

3 to 8

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? IMG_1723

For the most part, yes, as I made some modifications as described below.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

N/A (since I only used three pattern pieces, added one of my own and put it together myself).

What you particularly liked or disliked about the pattern:

I liked that it is a basic apron off of which you can build. These are aprons are versatile and can be used by kids to protect their clothes not only during cooking, but for other messy activities like painting, workshop, gardening or even simply coloring using markers.

Fabric Used:

100% quilting cotton remnants from Jo-Ann.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

The pattern pieces for the apron (#3), tie (#35) and pocket (#6) while self-drafting a rectangle measuring 2″ by 4″ for the loop were used. To make this reversible apron with waist loops and pocket, each of the four pattern pieces were cut twice from contrasting fabrics. For the tie, the fabric was pressed in half lengthwise, opened up, each side pressed in half again toward the fold (essentially, the width ends up being 1/4 of its original), opened up again and one end pressed 3/8″ perpendicularly toward the fold then the tie was edge-stitched in an L-shape to close (with one end left unfinished). The loop was created in the same manner, except both ends were left unfinished. On the right side of one apron cut-out, the ties and loops were pinned at the shoulder and waist, respectively. The contrasting apron cut-out was then placed with its right side on top of the ties and loops, pinned and then stitched leaving an opening at the bottom to turn. After turning, the apron was pressed and then edge-stitched all around. A pocket was added to one of the aprons on each side, centered and at waist level.

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

Absolutely! Yes.
