    This pattern came together so fast! And the instructions were very well written.

    Can’t figure out how to print the pieces so they are full size. I printed at 100% but it’s not working out. Are there secrets to printing?

    I only started sewing 6 months ago and this pattern/instructions were super clear and easy to follow. I loved making it! The design is simple which made it the perfect gift for my chicken obsessed father-in-law

    Thank you for this easy to follow pattern! My apron turned out so cute and my friend is going to love it!!

    Easy to follow, but I made a bunch as gifts and I wish there was a suggested waist measurement to see what size you are. Otherwise it was awesome!!

    FUN! FUN!
    Well written instructions. Went together quickly after I cut everything out. I have made 2 of these so far. One for me and one for a friend. The 2nd one I only used interfacing on one side of the waist ties. 2 were too stiff. I did lengthen the waist ties as I am a RTW size 12 and the ties weren’t long enough to tie in the front which is easier for me. I made the adult large.

    I don’t even have chickens, but the minute I saw this pattern in my inbox, I dropped everything and whipped one up! So, so cleverly constructed. Now to get some chickens…

    In the beginning it was a bit confusing…
    But once all the parts came together…
    It was easy.. especially if your a seamstress…
    Thank you for the pattern…

    Just started my apron…even though it’s rated 1/4 for easy, right out of the gate I’m a bit frustrated that there is no cutting layout suggested. Yes, I’ll eventually figure out the best layout, but I assumed this was a “gateway” pattern, to introduce new customers to these patterns. Yardage is given, I’m surprised that the directions don’t include the most efficient use of the amount of fabric listed in the pattern. Hopefully, I’ll do better with the assembly instructions. I certainly appreciate the free pattern, maybe I’m expecting too much.

    First apron I’ve sewn and it came together easily. Like all swoon patterns I’ve tried, the instructions and photos are straightforward and simple to follow.
