Great pattern, great shape, and easy to follow instructions with lots of pictures. I did all one colour and premade gingham trim at the bottom. Love the end result, and the sweetheart neckline, a very happy friend who I made it for. Thanks!

Great pattern! I’m a pretty experienced sewer and I’ve found some ‘homemade’ patterns can be challenging to work out but this one hit every mark. Easy to follow, true to size, super cute! Highly recommend

Beautiful apron pattern! It was very easy to make. I chose to do a single rounded halter strap instead of the two straps that tie together. I love the retro look.

I am absolutely in love with this apron. I got the free mini apron pattern as well, and let me tell you.. The finished product did NOT disappoint. I've taken pictures but they do the apron NO justice. Absolutely gorgeous.
