A Wrap Smock


I had been fiddling around with ideas for different smocks. I had seen some cute wrap shirts and dresses around. Like this one. And this one (if only I could knit). And this one. And this one. Oh, and this one (love that one!). And then I saw this one. And then I decided it was time to do it.

While this is my prototype, I'm happy with how it turned out. I used fabrics I already had. And the basics of a dress pattern that I had made before. (It looks a little wonky on the hanger, but it's not so bad when she's wearing it. Overcast skies = no sun = not-so-good photos. Sorry.)


It is lined in green gingham, so I suppose it is reversible, too, if a little Spenser desires.

I don't suppose that would look good on a size 12 woman, would it? It's adorable!!! Love the pink and green (gingham!). Nice job, Lera.
