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!

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.

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.

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

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

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

That did not work out for me, dds favourite hoodie has skulls all over it hmm

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.
