McCall 8232 - Women's and Misses' Back-Wrap-Around Smock
Sometimes you have to wonder if the illustrator was happy in her work. Illustrating a severely plain garment in two different solids is sort of uninspiring, and that large windowpane check is probably not a good choice for a pregnant lady.
This garment has quite a long history. We've seen it before, called different things: see Banner 131 Overall, and Pictorial Review 3783 Work Apron. The garments called smocks that we see in the 1920's and 1930's tend to be front-buttoning.
No fabric recommendations are given, and yardages are offered for only 35" and 39" wide fabric.
This pattern does not appear to have been used.
