Hi! The smock apron that you show, do you know where I can get that pattern? I looked on The List, but I didn't find it, sadly. Perhaps you know a way to find it? Thanks so much!

I'm in the same boat as Trish! I love that yellow apron and would love to make one (or twenty!) and just can't find the pattern anywhere. Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks so much!

Unknown said...

Hi, Thanks for all the wonderful apron patterns, I would love to make the one with the bow shown on the main page(the ones shown in orange, yellow, purple and navy/red). Is this pattern available anywhere?

Karen said...

I'm with Nicola--the very first apron picture for this post is the kind of apron I would love to make, but I can't find the pattern among the links provided. Are you able to help? Thank you in advance!

I just found your blog and like so many others, I wonder if anyone ever found a pattern for the yellow gingham smock pattern? I checked the links in the other comments but link only sells the aprons already made, not the pattern from what I could tell. I am so happy to find your blog I am going to add your blog to my blog list.
