Probably after 1907 but before the first World War.
I've made this up in the round necked sleeveless version and it has become an essential part of my winter at-home wardrobe.
I've been trying to post pictures of my apron for months. The problem was that I was either wearing it or it was so dirty I couldn't bring myself to photograph it. Well, I am rather chagrined to report that these photos show the apron freshly washed. I do quite a lot of cooking and usually wear this apron, so this is as clean as it gets.
When I made it up I forgot that the shoulder and side seams were 1" rather than 3/8", so this came out huge. The actual bust measurement is about 52" Unless I'm wearing a heavy sweater, the apron tends to slide off one shoulder or the other. Sometimes I'll pin a big pleat in the center front neckline to take up the extra - a very charming look, I assure you. I shortened it about 5 inches, to come to just above ankle length. When I go out to pick a few fresh herbs from my garden, this apron has been known to spook passing dogs.
I put enormous buttons down the back so that I wouldn't have to fuss too much with fastening them. In general practice, when I'm cooking I tend to button only the top and bottom buttons. When I'm doing general housework with a lot of stooping or kneeling, I do up all the buttons.
Note that the pattern envelope states that "Any desired style of trimming may be adopted." That's interesting for a work apron. I wonder what percentage of women making this apron added any trimming, and what it was.
