I ordered the new Bend the Rules Sewing book from Amazon when it first came out and was itching to make something from it. Something. Anything. I decided one night that it would be the swing smock. I tried to enlarge the pattern the best I could on our 3-in-1 printer, but unfortunately it has pre-set enlargement scales and none was quite right, even though I enlarged the enlargements.
It's a little short, but it fits Spenser and that's all that matters. She likes wearing it. She just doesn't like the camera too much. She ran around the house saying (in her most pip-squeaky voice), "No, Mommy. No, Mommy," as she giggled and ran through the house. Once in awhile shooting me a smile in her delight that I was chasing her and giggling with her.
And slid down the steps. Over and over ...
It's reversible, too. And, I made it completely from my stash (as is everything I've made lately) for the challenge. I just need to start adding to the flickr group.
