I have had this apron pattern for about a year. I had everything I needed to make it except matching thread and buttons. I finally found some matching thread! I kept looking in the reds for a thread to match it to no avail. I finally said to myself how about in the oranges. Finally!! I found a thread color to match! The fabric looked red to me, but according to the matching of the thread it is more of a tomato soup color red/orange!! LOL
I never did purchase any buttons for the apron. I saved myself some pennies by tying a knot on either side of the neck tie after pushing it through the buttonhole! I then called it done!
I think this is so cute! I am very happy with it! :0)
