I’m seldom so literal, but when I say cocktail apron, I mean an apron with a cocktail print. Why settle for a fancy, frilly thing when one can have cocktails on (and off) the apron?
This is the first one I bought, some years ago. It remains my favorite because of the colors and the simple drawings.
This one is a bit old-fashioned, and a lot more realistic. What sold me on this one was the waistband, which was engineered to be used for the waist and ties, and perhaps as pocket trim. I also love the recipes floating around the drinks.
The maker of this apron tried to stretch her fabric too far and ended up with a skimpy look. No matter; the print makes up for it.
This is a border print, but the waistband is made from the large part of the print. These prints almost always included a smaller print (as in my yellow apron) that was to be used as the waistband. I bet our sewer was trying to use up a bit of fabric leftover from another project.
How about that weird perspective? A touch of the modern.
