What Is It?


Is it a smock? Is it a jumper? Is it a dress or a shirt? I'm not quite sure.

What started out to be another smock, morphed into this. A wrap smock of a different style. I played around with my pattern and, instead of doing side seams and ribbon ties, I constructed it from one piece of fabric.

It is made from part of the leftover sheet I used for my wrap skirt, and lined with yellow gingham. I used two white, vintage, flower buttons for the front closure (which are crooked, so don't look too closely). And because I used buttons (on the front only), it is not reversible.

When she put it on, it was very A-line. It totally reminded me of the 70's, especially with that fabric!

LERA!!! Geez man!!! Every time I see Spenser in one of these smocks I think, "Come ON Finny, doesn't the goddaughter need one of those? And perhaps a set of fingerpaints, too?"

I think this will be the Christmas gift this year. A smock and a bunch of stuff she can use to make a big mess.

I will not be looking my best friend in the eye when I give her daughter the Gift of Doom.
