I made Butterick 5474 for a friend who recently-ish realized a long dream of having a Mid-century Modern home with a pool!
When I spotted this fun print I HAD to buy some to make something for her. An apron was my inclination - partly because she made one for me as a gift the first time we met IRL after developing a friendship on the old site.
I’m pretty tickled with how close I got with pattern matching the pockets!
I’m also tickled with how Santa’s little tighty-whitey-clad bum ended up peeking above the bib on one of the neck straps. I made the bias tape with another great vintage style print and hand finished it (on the back).
This is View A. I wouldn’t say that this is the best-written pattern I’ve used, but I think that an intermediate sewist who is comfortable with store bought patterns wouldn’t struggle. I’m hoping to make a couple more of the views from this pattern.
