A 1950s style retro frilly aprons in an ironic fabric - roses with skulls or similar.

Or would you smile politely and think WTF.

I think I need opinions which are not mine before I bulk order fabric for my mates!

The skull fabric you linked to is vair creepy.
I do however like this retro fabric on your site.
Still ironic, and perhaps with a trim in a simpler fabric? polka dots / gingham etc.

As you are going to so much trouble to make something, it would be lovely that people would want it on show use it.

love me some skulls! I would love this as a present!

MollyBerry Sun 30-Jun-13 20:15:25

Omg those skulls are creepy, no. Like the Christmas one though!

DearlyDepartedMrsFinch Sun 30-Jun-13 20:10:07

I would love it with the skulls. Homemade is a lovely idea.

Look at the Ulster Weavers collection on Amazon for lovely ideas of a popular take on this idea...might help.

I'd love it and have q friend who probably has one. By the way, if you are my friend, please make one for me! smile

But I can think of many other friends who wouldn't like it.

LowLevelWhinging Sun 30-Jun-13 19:54:12

Home made - yes, LOVE it

Quirky fabric - yes

Pinny - no. Never wear em and I love to cook.

I'd love a shopping tote or make up bag or something though.

Snog Sun 30-Jun-13 19:50:47

Don't like pinnys or skulls so it would go in my charity shop bag
Your mates might be cooler than me thought grin

onedogandababy Sun 30-Jun-13 19:48:55

Yep, love it. Though, surely you know your friends tastes better than strangers on the internet?!

Onesleeptillwembley Sun 30-Jun-13 19:41:01

Honestly? No. Marmite type of thing.

TeaOneSugar Sun 30-Jun-13 19:40:38

I'd love it if it's was properly retro, wouldn't be keen on the skulls.

I like a pretty apron for baking, and a plain one for cleaning.

I no domestic goddess but I like to look like one.

MikeLitoris Sun 30-Jun-13 19:36:02

I would love one with that skull pattern.

I seem to have a bit of a collection of skull scarves

cocolepew Sun 30-Jun-13 19:33:11

No, but I don't use an apron. I'd like it as a tea towel though. Or a cushion cover.

How about 'You come on back to Stepford soon now, y'hear!'

ITCouldBeWorse Sun 30-Jun-13 19:26:33

Ah, as ever I walk the marmite line!

So maybe some in traditional floral, some with skulls or something equally daft?

For traditional - flowers? Cupcakes (I know!), anchors?

And for the WTFkers, a bottle of wine?

smallandimperfectlyformed Sun 30-Jun-13 19:25:05

Oops, put kisses - that's something not to be done on Mumsnet!

Startail Sun 30-Jun-13 19:24:48

Proper apron with a top, yes. Skulls no, that would go straight to the charity shop.

Skulls give me the creeps. No skull clothing is allowed (fortunately I have DDs).

Yama Sun 30-Jun-13 19:24:40

I'd love it.

smallandimperfectlyformed Sun 30-Jun-13 19:24:20

I would love it - depends on what your friends like though xxx

Aworryingtrend Sun 30-Jun-13 19:24:10

Would love an apron in retro style but no no no to skulls.

OneStepCloser Sun 30-Jun-13 19:22:28

I think I`d rather like it, even if I just hung it on a knob (not dh grin)
