So it was my 20th birthday a couple of months ago. To celebrate, I had a joint birthday party with a friend of mine at university (who also has a house, and seeing as I was planning on using it anyway, it was only fair to invite him!)

Now, Alex is a completely heterosexual male, but ever so domestic. The man cooks (very well), cleans, and enjoys it! It's a running joke in his (mostly female) house that he's more feminine that the girls are. Having brought my sewing machine to uni, I couldn't resist making him something...


The apron I made:



All in pink satin with black lace and grosgrain. Somewhat Chanel - inspired. And totally impractical!
I sewed black lace to the pink rubber gloves to make them a bit fancier. Never again am I sewing marigolds...


...Then I thought "I've got loads of this pink satin (appropriated from the college social committee's store room...) left. And the apron doesn't look like much. Hmm."
...And I made some boxers from a pattern I found on the internets. Worryingly, the majority of lads who saw them said "they look quite comfy, actually." I did have to keep taking in the seams, because he's quite slim, so I went on the theory that if they were too small for me, he'd be fine! ...Just ignore my foot in the picture.



And a closeup of the fly:



The instructions weren't that clear, so I had to wing it, but I'm insanely pleased with how it came out.


Finally, the whole ensemble! Quite a charming Look, I think Wink Not sure who got him the pink hat. I am, by the way, tying the apron for him. Honest. While Captain Jack looks on.

Awesome, hilarious, and most beautifully crafted!  I love the pink and lace and button details.  That slippery stuff is hard to work with too - great job!

Happy birthday, and you've got a friend with a great sense of humor there - lucky both of you!

LOL, he will be the best dressed cook in the house. 

The items look great and your friend has to have a great sense of humor (and sure of his masculinity) to pose wearing that much pink with black lace and he will probably have a great time putting them on to shock people.
