    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?

    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?

    have tried...I went to Walmart today and looked in Simplicity pattern book under crafts
    and guess what I found....THE PATTERN!!!!! its pattern number 5201 so you might try your local walmart if you have one...I am soooooo happy lol and it was $6.94 plus tax a
    lot cheaper than on ebay.

    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.
