Pattern Review Simplicity Apron 2492

I love aprons and I have been hoarding apron patterns for a while now. My current apron was on it's last leg so I decided to make myself a new one. I wanted to make an apron that had a little more coverage, which I found out is hard to find. I came across Simplicity 2492 during one of Joann's pattern sales and version A looked like it provided more coverage on top so I cut it out using left over fabric.

By the way I have used this pattern to make those felt cookies on the plate and they turned out fantastic. Just thought I would mention it. Anyways the cut apron sat on my sewing table for months and I finally got around to sewing it. Partially because I needed more space on my sewing table and partially because I am procrastinating on my Christmas sewing.

I didn't use all of the trims the pattern called for, just the bias tape along the edge. It provides a lot more coverage on top as well as the bottom. The strap are a little long though. Next time I will add some velcro to the straps and avoid using the bias tape as the ties like the pattern calls for. Overall it was a simple pattern, not that many pattern pieces and very easy sewing steps.

I decided to skip the bias tape on the pockets and instead serger the edges and just sew on the pockets. I added a little lace trim my mom had left over, I think it matches nicely. How lovely are those flowers and polka dots? Now I really need to get some Christmas sewing done.
