A Wrap Smock for Bella


This sweet and simple piece works as either a utilitarian apron or a fashion layer. Bella, that queen of layering, chose to make it a part of her outfit.


A simple tiny floral and some contrast binding work with the very shapely cut quite nicely!

I mocked it up from my Verity Hope dress from years past. Making it in my own size gave Bella the extra ease to wear it over other clothes.

Bella looks stunning, as always. I always liked that wrap around dress.

Remember this:

Last week we piled in the car for a string of errands. "Mommy! You're still wearing your apron!" exclaimed Bella. I told her I thought it looked good with my outfit and I had left it on on purpose. There was a pause. "Clara, do something!" she cried.


Bella's come a long way. :-D

Love that fabric....maybe because I just happen to have a skirt I sewed a while back made of the same material! Marie

That fabric's lovely...my mom used the same print to make a skirt for my best friend's little sister. :) Bella looks stunning!
