Quick & Easy Sewing Project - Monkey Apron




Simplicity 3752  Misses Aprons





Pattern Description: Simplicity 3752  Misses Aprons A & B are full aprons with a halter top.  Apron C, D & E are half aprons. Apron C has a pocket and a flounce.  Apron D has 4 layers of ruffles.  Apron E is divided in 3 sections.  Apron F is a long half apron. 

Pattern Sizing: I cut a size Small

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, I think it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow? The directions were easy to follow and worked great.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that you could chose from 6 different styles.  You have endless options using different fabrics and patterns.

Fabric Used: A cotton print with cute monkeys. 

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew this one again and make it one size bigger.  I will make view D and possibly A.

Conclusion: The apron was quick to make and I think it turned out cute.  The only thing I would do different is make it a size larger.  I am a petite girl and the small did not seem to be wide enough.  As you can see in the picture below it made me look wide!  :)  I took some pictures on the dress form and it made the dress form look fat too!  So, it wasn't all the candy I have been eating lately.  lol
