Over the weekend I got the sewing itch so I cleared out the seedlings and unearthed my machine. The Little Miss is obsessed with pockets right now so I decided to make her a pocket smock so she can store all of the little 'treasures' she finds around the house. It's funny what she ends up with sometimes. About five minutes after I put this on her she had a wooden block and four little plastic speckled eggs weighing her down.
I used a vintage pattern and scrounged through fabric and notions I already had on hand. The flower print is from an old pillowcase and the gingham I thrifted a while back. The button on the front is leftover from this romper refashion. I love how it turned out and it was worth it to hear her excitedly yell, "Pockets!"
By the way, she is modeling it on the ledge of a freshly painted wall in our living room. It was a darker bright blue but now it is a light silvery blue (hard to tell in the picture). We still have to touch up the edges but I love the new color - its much more peaceful. Until I decide how I want to hang all of my pictures up they are leaning against the wall on the ledge.
I'm adding this to the elsie marley flickr group for the Kids Clothes Week Challenge.
