Color Name: Aqua Damask
I purchased this as a gift and was pleased when it arrived. It looked very nice, the pictures of the garment were accurate, and the fit on the recipient was spot on.
The problem is this is not a very good apron. It is made of a very thin cotton with a bit of a sheen/screen on the material. It just does not work well as a "working" apron, even in the home. Now, if you want something cute to throw on at a cocktail or dinner party after all the cooking is done so you can be dressed the part of the well appointed hostess and home maker, then this is perfect.
I'm not saying I don't like the item, but just know what it is before you make your purchase, and be sure you don't actually need an apron instead of a fashion accessory.

I ordered the aqua damask. I was very torn because so many of the flirty apron patterns are adorable. I loved loved loved this apron when I first put it on. It's made from a double-layered, polyester-type fabric that seemed sturdy and pretty much waterproof. The straps for the neck tie in the back, so you can set how the apron sits on you (plus a cute tie around the neck adds a little extra bit of femininity to the whole affair). The waist ties are long so they accommodate almost any figure, and easily tie make a pretty bow in the front. The pocket in the front is helpful too. Overall, a winner!
Now on to the negatives (or why this item didn't get 5 stars): after I washed the apron, I noticed that the black pattern on the front didn't hold up well in the washer. The design was somewhat compromised and looked like it was worn off in places, which in my mind is a tragedy, since I bought this mostly because it was pretty. The neck and waist ties got incredibly shriveled up, and one of the neck straps started separating from the apron itself.
Perhaps I need to wash this on delicate... but honestly the whole purpose of an apron is to protect your clothes and soak up all the cooking mess... so by it's very nature.. IT'S MEANT TO GET DIRTY... and consequently get washed a lot. I worry that this won't last too long, since I cook a lot... and the washer might just destroy this lovely little apron in just a few washings.

I will start with the pros of this apron before moving on to the cons.
This apron is adorable. The print is bright and fun. I mean, really? It's cherries! Who doesn't love cherries?
The tie wraps all the way around to tie in the front (I'm a size 16-18). I suppose this could be a con, if the ties were to get into the food.
Keeps clothes clean in the kitchen. This is important, since it is the main purpose of any apron. It will not keep your shoes clean, but I understand that we women aren't supposed to wear shoes in the kitchen anyway.
The material is a bit stiff, like it's been over-starched, or perhaps is a cotton-cardboard blend.
"Oh, I can wash that out," I said. "I'll use fabric softener!" Oh but that was not a good idea,
Upon washing, the threads started to pull out, and the waist tie started to detach from the body of the apron. It was an easy needle and thread fix, but who wants to sew a new apron? The bottom ruffle lost a little stitching, too, and I'm far too lazy to do that much sewing, especially if I'm supposed to be cooking.
I'm hesitant to wash it again because I don't want it to get worse.
On the plus side, it looks good hanging in the kitchen, and perhaps gives the appearance that I cook more than I really do.

I am guessing all the great reviews on this item haven't washed it yet. First time I washed it the apron faded and shrank. Not worth the price

Read these reviews - EVEN the good ones!!!!!!!!!
Many of the 4 star reviews are really 2 star if you read them. I agree with all the complaints others have listed as this is my experience with this apron too - I got the cherry blossom one. It doesn't function as a working apron - the material allows food to soak through onto your clothing. That said, you could buy it just for show to be cute I guess but as cute as it looks in the picture, it is a much lesser quality in person. And it itches! After one wash (on gentle), the neck straps began separating from apron, the waist straps began unraveling and the cute pattern began crumbling off (and I did not even dry it)! After a second wash, the pattern wasn't even cherry blossoms anymore-just pieces of color.
This is extremely over-priced for a very low quality print and low quality construction - as well as it being unusable as a cooking apron for protecting your clothes - and god forbid you get something on the apron (what it is made for), then you wash it and it falls apart.

This apron is absolutely adorable!! It is definitely "flirty" as their business is titled. I wouldn't recommend it for regular baking or cooking, but if you're looking for something absolutely fantastic to pair with a cute outfit for serving cocktails at your party or for greeting your spouse ;) THIS is the perfect apron no doubt!!

I ordered this for a friend as she is an avid cake-baker. The quality was very cheap. The material is thin and there are snags all over. This apron is all look, no function. I wanted something that was cute but that also served a purpose of keeping the baker clean. This apron would not hold up to any spills of batter whatsoever. Returned the product as fast as I could.

I am 5'6", 125lb and was anticipating this apron to be a little longer/taller/bigger than it was. I even have a shorter torso, but perhaps larger chest. It looks OK as long as I get the apron to sit on my waist where I want and tie that first, then tie the top part. I would estimate it would fit best on women's size 2 to 4 (I'm usually a 6).
Fabric is very sturdy and thicker/stiffer than I was expecting, which I like. Pockets are useful. The apron itself is beautiful and I am very pleased with it!

This apron is made of the cheapest poor quality cotton, it looks really tacky.
BUT: I bought already one Flirty Apron last year (Dec. 2011) and that was as described, made of a super soft, strong, smooth, good quality fabric and I love it and keep on getting compliments for it, so I don't understand this drop in quality from last year to now (Dec 2012).
