Looking for a sexy but functional apron.

I'm looking for a completely awesome apron to wear while I bake. I've found some here and here, but none of these have quite inspired me to drop $40. Number one is closest to what I'm looking for in terms of style, but I'm not crazy about the print. Are there any other online stores that sell something similar?

Sexy's in the eye of the beholder, of course, but what's sexier than a punk rock chef?

Well, almost anything. Just hope your dinner guest(s) never actually went to CBGB-- especially not into the bathrooms...

I purchased mine directly from CBGB, but it doesn't look like they sell it any more. You could try calling, I guess...

I think this apron is very flattering. Can you sew, or know a friend that does? Aprons are the easiest things to make, and there are tons of cool patterns.

Try searching Etsy for aprons; you'll be able to get something unique and handmade. I especially like this one. Here's a link to a search of the clothing category.

Have you looked at Etsy?

If there's nothing exactly like you're looking for, you can commission one using their Alchemy feature.

I have a pretty great apron collection that I've collected at garage sales, farm sales, and antique stores, with my favorites being the ones my grandmother made for herself and used.

Some of these are v. cute.

Doh. They're the same ones that LoriFLA posted, only from a different site, and Lori's collection is much larger. Whoopsie!

Lots of aprony goodness here. Hopefully folara responds - she is a lover of all kinds of aprons.

This is a really cute and easy pattern from Decades of Style, if sewing is indeed an option. I've been considering getting the pattern for the 1930's kitchenette pyjamas myself, among other things.

Get a nice white apron and scrawl 'apr0n' across it in red sauce (or sauce-like dye). If you want it printed, you could get a cafepress apron and then adjust it for sexiness.

This one's nice too.

What's sexier than meat?

Or, if "hot" will substitute for "sexy"

I would check your local vintage shop-they always have lots of very fem 50s housewife aprons.

I just bought the Delft blue apron from Cece Marie, who is a real person, and charming via email.

My grandmother had one.

It was given to her by her sons-in-law (my father and uncle). Flesh-colored fabric trimmed in black lace around the bikini line and bra-strap area. Removable "pot holders"...with nipples.

Not sure if that was the year before or after the inflatable bra.

Drop me a line and I'll put you in touch with my mother.

More aprons here, to add.

As a man, this is more what I had in mind...
