Here’s my patternreview.com review for McCall’s 5825. It’s a current release but the envelope art suggests it’s a vintage reprint.
Pattern Description: misses aprons
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy to follow
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like the retro feel of the design
Fabric Used: calico from Hancock’s
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I used a straight size L, which was recommended for 16-18. I normally use a 16 for my shoulder/neckline area and 22 at the side seams. The straps were long enough to go around me with plenty of room for a bow. Also, since this is a one-way print, I ended up having to piece the straps.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I will sew it again and yes I would recommend it to others.
I love this apron!
