ready for cocktails!? make mine a margarita! i finished this on friday...i worked on it instead of the alteration i should have been doing! (it's all good, i finished that on saturday) and the pocket is on ther right side this time! i actually really like the pocket. and i LOVE the pink organza, and the black lace!
i had first thought to overlay the entire apron front with the lace, but that way the pocket does not show, and the black lace ruffle was not as effective. this apron thing is really addictive...what have i gotten myself into!? i have an idea for another, with an embroidery of these two stamps i bought at michael's...they are of a margarita glass and a martini glass. i just have to draw them a little bit bigger, 'cause they a little too small to see! salud!
post script! i noticed after this was written, the new 'cocktail of the day' would be perfect to go with this apron! "martini rosso rapture" two parts red vermouth, 5 parts cranberry juice! skake with ice, strain into glass and serve with an orange slice. that might be a pretty pink cocktail! or maybe a bit more red? oh well, a strawberry daquiri would work fine too! who says the cocktails has to match!? LOL!
