I came across "The Perfect Apron" by Robert Merrett at the good old Dunedin Public library and for my sister-in-laws B'day whipped up (10 hours! ack! I'm so slow) an apron based on the Hot Lips cocktail pattern. My only change was to add a pocket - using the pocket pattern Floral Dance from the book.

My youngest niece just loved it and wanted one too (not the niece who wants the Marie Antoinette dress). I gave her the book and she picked out Gypsy Spirit.
My only change was to make the design reversible and again use the Floral Dance pocket. It took me about seven hours to complete - not including the pocket.
She loved it, wore it all night as we played 'shop'. And when my hubby went around to their place the next day, she was still wearing it.
