The Sunshine Smock

This is what I've been doing this morning:
A few posts back, I shared a picture or two of the little smock/apron that Grandma gave me. I was inspired to make a pattern off of it and make a couple up. As usual in my sewing, I didn't make it identical to the pattern. The ties on the original were fabric, and the rick rack was really tiny and all I had was the standard size, so I used less on my copy.

I'm still very happy with the way it turned out. I even named it after Grandma's childhood nickname, "Dode."
And since it such a cute and cheery style, I'm calling it: Dode's Sunshine Smock.

That is so adorable! I love the all over style of it. I think it would make an absolutely fabulous covering for my boys, since they get things everywhere and their clothes always get so untidy during the course of the day. The side ties are so smart, and so cute. This is darling!
