Vintage Apron Patterns

Apron pattern are some of favorites.  These are some of mine:

These are two of my favorites.  I love the style of the aprons and their 1940's hairdos.
I haven't made either of these.They are the old type of pattern with perforations and no markings.
I haven't been brave enough to tackle them yet!
These are mail order patterns from the 1950's.
I love all the different pocket variations on these!

I've made two aprons from this "flirty skirty" pattern (1/2 apron and full apron).  
They turned out really cute.

What are your favorite apron patterns?  
Do you prefer vintage or new?
Do you sew with your apron patterns or just collect them?
