Hi!
     I've been looking for this all over the internet sporadically for months now, and...nada.  I'm trying to find a pattern or at least a name for a specific type of apron.  It's a 1930's-ish type of apron, and it resembles a wrap dress, has no sleeves, and extends to the knee.  Can anyone please enlighten me with the name of this type of apron, before I lose all hope with search engines? Grin
Thanks a bunch!

EDIT: here's a picture of what I'm trying to describe:

Try searching for pinafore aprons. Or full sized aprons.

I googled "pinafore" and "full size apron," and are not exactly what I envisioned; the "wrap around halter" was close, but I have a feeling that there's an exact style that I've been seeing somewhere out there.  I'm sorry-I suppose I should have put up a picture of the apron I've seen (mostly in movies and television shows) before you went to the trouble of helping me.  I added the image to the original message. Smiley

Oh, and the link you PMed me was awesome; what beautiful aprons!  Some of them are way too beautiful to wear for practical purposes-especially the ball gown-ey ones.  Thanks so much!

I don't know what the type of apron is called but it appears to be similar to one in this pattern (lower left).

It looks a lot like this Simplicity pattern, only backwards.  http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=5201

Okay...I stumbled upon the apron in a pattern making book.  Evidently, it's called a "wrap apron," which seems like such a Captain Obvious discovery.  Crisis averted!
