New Vintage Style Apron Pattern, plus a freebie!

I am happy to share the newest WhatTheCraft Pattern has arrived in the shop!

It’s a vintage style apron with lots of retro flair- a flouncy twirly circle skirt, sweetheart bust, ruffled hem, and adjustable neck and waist ties!

And to compliment the apron, I’ve also released a free pattern for a collection of vintage style pockets!

Of course they make a perfect addition to the apron, but you can also use them on bags, clothing, etc. And did I mention they’re free?

There’s also a mini apron add-on for this pattern – also free!

Here’s an example of some ornament charms that I made using Sharpies and shrink plastic:
