Little Smock for Busy Girl of Three

Pattern : Little Smock for Our Busy Girl of Three
Book: Enid Gilchrist Three to Six - Clothes for Boys and Girls
Fabric: Clear plastic, cotton broadcloth, quilting cotton
Size: Three to Four years

A very easy smock to whip up which is nice and long to protect the children's clothes. I made this for a customer who needed a long sleeved smock but with a easy-to-wipe plastic front. I left out the gorgeous detailing that is supposed to be on this smock due to the plastic being there. I also left off the collar and bound both neck and hem with bias.

Shift, 2-5 years

I made this shift for the 2 year old daughter of a friend. It looks huge now but should last her a long time! It looks better in real life - not a very good photo.

The buttons are from my grandmother's collection - they are old old old.

Pattern: Shift
Book: Play Clothes, page 17
Size: 2-5 yrs
Fabric: Cotton print

Baby Sunsuit 2

I did make a second one. This one fits perfectly with room on the strap to move the button next summer. I remembered to put the seam allowance in this time. No chance to take an action shot sorry!

Pattern: Baby's Sunsuit
Book: Play Clothes
Size: 9-18 mths
Fabric: Poly/cotton animal print
