An Artist's Smock in the Shop

Men's dress shirts from the thrift store are so useful. Cut them up for quilts, make them into aprons, or reconfigure them as smocks or sundresses for little girls. Here I reshaped the shoulders and yoke, leaving the button placket intact and turning the garment front to back. Some bias binding and an extra snap closure keep things tidy.

Find it in my etsy shop!

Wow! Such a great idea! I definitely need to make up some of these for my little artists. Thank you so much for sharing.

Wow! I haven't followed your blog for a while because I got distracted (ADD + Interet = All Sorts of Odd Endeavors). Is that Daisy? She's so big now!

Dang those kids...they just keep growing!
