I decided to try out a purchased pattern, rather then my usual hand drawn templates, and even though I picked an easy one, it was still confusing. I liked the already drawn pattern, one less thing for me to do, but I had to wonder about the order of some of the steps in the instructions and even the English ones seemed like they were written in another language.  Undecided I may not have ended up doing things the exact way the instructions called for, but my aprons still came out looking right. I just hope reading and following the instructions gets easier with pratice since I bought a few different ones. On to the picture, and for anyone that's interested it's a Macall's stitch and save pattern.

Thanks for looking!

Reading patterns does get easier. As you dive in and put things together they way u think they are supposed to be and read along with the pattern, it works itself out Smiley At least that is how I learned to read em. Eventually you get the oooooooo that is what they meant.
I love the prints you used.

They both turned out lovely!

You will find that after a while, the pattern instruction is just a guide and you will only go to the parts that might be new to you...it does get easier as you become more experienced...

Glad that you were brave to jump in--you got two very practical and pretty items with more to come!
