This is the time of year when some of us spend a lot of time in hot steamy kitchens, converting the garden's produce into quarts and pints of good things for the winter. The all-business economy apron and cap would be just the right thing to wear for those marathon bean-canning or piccalilli-making days. I might have a couple of these aprons handy so that after lunch I could put on a dry one.
This apron is so simple that I think you would have good luck sizing up this pattern from the layout. To give you some measurements to start with, the front length (bottom of neckline to bottom edge is 36") The width from the center line to the back edge just under the arm hole is 17 1/2".
Farm and Fireside was a magazine published between 1879 and 1939.
