I would think you could easily draft one yourself. take the measurement of the width you'd need for the bottom on the piece and the height and the width of the top, draw some lines and connect them until you get the curve that you like and but bias tape around the edge. And for the bottom frill make a slight trapezoid using the larger width and gather and connect it onto the larger piece and attach bias tape again, cut out a shape for the pocket, line it is you want (You could line the apron too, for each of the pieces just sew it up like a pillow and then put the bias tape on or you can forgo to the pillow thing altogether and just put the unfinished edges into the fold of the bias tape.) and attach straps. Instant-presto kick arse apron!  Cheesy Hope that helped a bit...

Like always, but never like before.

Take a look at this pattern on Martha Stewart, http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=channel5240030&contentGroup=MSL&site=living&rsc=ns2006_m3

You could shorten it and add a ruffle to the bottom.

Good luck!

Sew, what are you up to? http://asgchicago.wordpress.com/

I don't sew a lot, but I think that ruffled part is a straightened out curve, kind if like the way that circle skirts work.

The rest of the apron is pretty simple, with bias tape trim all around.

That is really cute.  I'm excited to see how yours turns out.  I think I might have to try making one as well.
