Would you like to make this pattern along with me?  I've made the pink view once (I thought it was a little complicated and time consuming) but it turned out nice. The green view I have made twice and loved the results. I am about to make it again with a little twist. My daughter wants it with the scalloped bottom and rounded pockets like the pink view.

I would enjoy some company, it is always more fun to sew with a friend. I am anxious to see pictures of which view you choose and all of the fun fabrics!

Hey I just bought this a short while ago.  I was out buying fabric for a certain spinners apron  Wink  Wink and noticed a paper pattern sale.  That was all the prompting I needed to enrich the stash a little.  I too was thinking I would really like to see the scalloped hem on some of the others.  I'd also like to mess about with the gathers on the heart one so it sits like it does in the old picture.

Be sure to pay attention to your finished measurements with the Simplicity patterns!  I have used two of their patterns so far and they seem to run large.  As in the SMALL sizes have fit my tall/bigish-medium mother rather than a petite/smaller-medium me!  I don't know if they're all that way.

So, seamstress beware!

Miss_Vicki,
Your ideas sound good. Be sure to show us pics when you can.

RecycleMicol,
Thanks for letting us know about Simplicity's sizing.  I'm kind of glad they run large because I'm busty and I have a butt also.  So they may work for me.

I finally made one!  Check it out.  Something tells me ShiningStar will like this one  Wink

What do you all think?  Obviously this is view D.  I used a cotton print, Betty Boop Red Hat Lady.  Also obvious.   Grin  The pattern was easy enough to follow.  I left off the pockets and didn't edge with bias as instructed.  I didn't have enough bias of all one colour in stash and I really wanted it to look overly simple anyhow.  I was trying to keep it all about the print here.

As for the size (it is a one size pattern remember), it's actually quite good, though more generous than I had expected.  I am a medium in the waist and a large in the hips and I felt it wrapped around me nicely (although further around than anticipated).  I think it would fit up to an XL just fine with out any mods (it would be super easy to widen at the centre line of the main skirt and waistband for larger than XL, but might not be necessary).  I would suggest for a small frame to just gather more at the sides, you wouldn't really even need to shorten the waistband unless you wanted to go extra small.  There was plenty of space around the back on mine where the ends of the band don't touch, that is why I feel there is some leeway there.  Actually, I think I'd gather more on my next one anyway.  I like a bit more poof in the skirt than this pattern gave (I want it like the picture, fair enough).  That will mean loosing some of the skirt coverage around the back, but I like it that way anyhow, I am only interested in covering my front really.  Hope all that makes sense.

I have already blogged about this, there really isn't any more info on there though.  But there is another two pictures, if ya like it enough to want more.  Smiley  http://missvicki.wordpress.com/2007/07/02/apron-for-sil-finished/

Now, after all that... I am gifting this to my Boop obsessed Sister In Law.   Grin
