pattern review.... Church Ladies' Apron

A friend of mine asked me to make her a couple of aprons for Christmas gifts. After the two of us perused Pinterest for a while, she decided she really loved these aprons. I thought the pattern looked really great so I ordered it online. It's the Church Ladies' Apron pattern. 
 I must say that this pattern did not disappoint! The whole pattern takes just one yard of 2 coordinating fabrics (I used some Denyse Schmidt fabrics I had on hand from Joanns). It went together in just a couple of hours. I love the contrasting pockets and the fun scalloped edge on the bottom.
 The really cool thing is that the apron is completely reversible! All of the seams are totally encased so there are no raw edges anywhere. Sweet!
I'll be keeping this one for myself (no, it doesn't match my kitchen, but really? It's so pretty!) and can't wait to make some more.

The Church Ladies' Apron Pattern gets 2 thumbs up from this girl!

Ooooo! I think I can handle a few aprons as Christmas gifts. Maybe I'll order this pattern too. Thanks for the review.
