Finished with one day to spare.
this pattern. Not at first, though. Way too many pieces to cut. But it came together easily with only one (small) mishap along the way. The pattern includes several nice details that really make the finished apron look beautiful. Skirt pleats, curved and lined pockets, a pleated and lined bodice, and nicely shaped bodice and skirt ties. I have plenty of fabric left over, so I think a potholder or two will make a nice follow-up gift. And, I see another one of these in my future -- one that will stay in my kitchen!
