milto42 designed this cute little number, called tablier de cuisine. i like how the kitchen utensils extend into the pocket where it will be partially covered. even though no one will be able to see that there are spoons resting inside your pocket, you know, and can always take a peek and giggle at the hidden little secret.
vina has several apron patterns following the same style. i don't think this one was submitted to the contest, but i like the whimsical floral pattern. i am particularly fond of how her designs cross in the back and button to the shoulder. it's possibly my favorite style of apron. i talk about it as if i have dozens... i actually never use aprons, but now i really want to.
gurumania designed this sweet apron, le jardin nocturne. i like the strap detail- it buttons over the front of the apron, but only one side. it's very feminine with a touch of cuteness.
there are many other fun apron patterns on the contest page (open for voting until wed), if you're looking for a new and functional sewing project.
