An apron for those inducted to the cult of domesticity.
The pattern of the apron itself was original to my dear friend Amanda who sewed it for me.

The first 15 hours of the project were all her,hand pleating all of the plaid edging, and sewing it all together.

The next 25 (and that's a conservative estimate) was me hand embroidering the lapel. I did all the floral on the even weave, and then the greens over the even weave through the first layer of fabric. I then used the button hole stitch on the machine to edge the even weave onto the apron.

Embroidery Pattern was based on the pansy pattern on page 86 of <a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Sweeter-Than-Rose-Christmas-Remembered/dp/094223734X"> "Sweeter The Rose"</a>

It's really pretty! It's not Lolita though. Happy Lolita doesn't incorporate aprons. Aprons are usually found on Anime "lolitas" and therefore Cosplay maids and "Itas". I'm not trying to be mean, but just in case anyone new or interested in the real Lolita fashion comes across this, they can know. Misinformation is rampant.

Just did some light reading , and I see why you would say that. Lolita has come a long way as a fashion genre since I was a teen. When my friends and I would discuss it, we meant something frilly, vaguely Victorian and child like. I know that it has sprouted a lot since then, and apparently includes a whole subculture who think of it as part of their identity. I meant no disrespect by this description, and you could think of it more as a costume Lolita piece (thought I use it functionally in my kitchen). I don't see why apron's in general would be excluded as a Lolita fashion accessory though. They seem very practical if you are wearing Lolita fashion as your daily wear.
