I do love a pretty pinafore style apron with a ruffle on the bib. Like the one worn here by the cute little girl on the cover of this vintage Better Homes and Gardens magazine:
Or the one Mom is wearing here in this old Campbell's soup advertisement:
And here's an adorable one to make for your doll:

And I REALLY wouldn't mind having one made with this Betsey Johnson pattern! (Wouldn't mind one of those bags, either!)
Cute, and practical, too!
