I had to battle through a ripped finger nail, nasty cold and car troubles, but I prevailed and my apron is done! I also was able to make a matching 50s hair flower to go with the black cherry cosmopolitan cocktail apron (I don't know if such a martini exists, but it definitely captures the colors of this apron). My favorite bit is the oval pocket trimmed in pink velvet ribbon and ruffles.
I hope my partner likes it. I'm planning on making one for myself with the leftover material :)
