I made this a while back for the FOC 4 swap -- my partner was BambiKhantastic a tattoo artist who likes to wear aprons while working.

I've only made like 3 items of clothing and  never use patterns so this was SUPER EASY McCalls pattern number:M3979 (there are several cute retro patterns in the package)

I've also never used bias tape, which is very easy.

The fabric is totally awesome pink cherry blossoms with gold highlights.

A link to pictures of Bambi wearing her apron (scroll down a bit -- the images are for a slightly mature audience)

Here's me in the apron before I sent it away:





Here's her "name" embroidered onto the front panel (see the gold!):
