I have lots of this adorable “kids by the sea” and seagull fabric. I’ve already made some pillowcases with some and I thought it would make a darling apron. I also used some of this fabric to make a bag. McCalls P342
I’m finding I get smoother curves when I cut out my patterns with a rotary cutter. I resisted this for so many years because I thought it was dangerous, but I can’t dispute the result. This pattern came out exactly like the photograph on the cover of the pattern. The directions were straightforward and easy to follow. I do recommend that you have another pair of hands to help you finish it up. You need someone to help you fit the back so it closes cleanly and also the shoulder strap. Also the pocket gets pinned to the front so you can have it in a comfortable and usable place.

This apron was a big hit at my store when I had it. Because the apron cut on the bias, it is very complimentary to the figure. I made one of these reversible aprons in two batik fabrics.
Another cute apron pattern from Decades of Style is the 1940’s Apron from Val’s Kitchen
