Does this apron style have a name?

I have searched and searched for a picture of this apron, but I cannot find one anywhere. It is a full style, no tie, criss-cross back, that pulls over your head. I believe it is a very old style.

If I can't find a pattern I will attempt to make my first newspaper pattern.

Any ideas?

Ashlee,
I make one for me that I call a garden apron. Here is what it looks like

Is that what you were looking for?

Yes! Thanks so much! I want to make them for myself and my kids so they don't need help tying.

Do you like the style? I've never worn one but they look comfy.

Ashlee,
I love my apron as it is very roomy for me and covers about every inch that needs to be covered. I do have a problem at times getting into the darn thing when I am in a hurry, but chalk that up to old age! I need to make me a few more as this one is getting a tad bit weathered, but still comfy. Heck if the armpits weren't too low, I could just wear it as a dress like I do my house coat. Yup, I'm old.

Debbie

The Winny and Gussy Aprons here have that design. Is this what you are talking about?

I was at Wal-Mart and thought I'd see if they had the pattern. Yup and at the same price you paid. I bought it!

Now, I have to fine the time to make one up!

I bought the Simplicity pattern awhile back but haven't used it yet.

I watch for Hobby Lobby to have patterns for 99¢ then I buy several for "someday". I've accumulated some basic clothing patterns as well as apron, bag, curtains, slip cover and pillow patterns. Last time they had the sale I couldn't find anything to buy! Well, I did find one but they didn't have it in stock.
