Pinafore or crossover apron

I saw this image on Pinterest. Can anyone help me with either a) where this image comes from, or b) where I can find a pattern for a similar adult crossover back apron?

Hmmm. Answered part of my own question: the image is from here: Pip-Squeak Chapeau etc. And a possible pattern here: Simplicity Pattern 5201 or here: Scalloped Apron Pattern from Candle on the Hill.

But with everything out here on the net, still think there must be a free pattern on a blog somewhere! I love this: Smashed Peas and Carrots' Little Girl's Crossover Pinafore, but I don't think that's going to fit me!

  1. I just used the free pattern on Smashed Peas and Carrots to make a pinafore for my 9 month old daughter. I love it! And now I want one in my size! I also like the one in the pic you posted.

  2. I too was wanting the same thing after seeing the same picture on Pinterest - after typing in particulars to google and heading to about page 3 I found this site.... make your own pattern... just the same really

    then mix it up a bit with lovely contrasting linens as above... hope this helps :o)

  4. I think Simplicity has one under the name of Daisy Kingdom for adults that is a cross over pinafore . Yes, it's simplicity Daisy Kingdom 7481 and it is out of print, but you might be able to google it and find someone willing to sell their old one.
