notes on a smock

I did it. I said I was going to make something and then I did. The very next day. I was almost derailed by the ‘it’s in japanese’ factor but I stuck with it and ta-da. It turned out really cute! (here’s the back) I love this style. It fits in very nicely with my strong desire to dress Phoebe as Laura Ingalls Wilder everyday. The fabric is fig and plum. I love this print. I also got it in blue.

This shot below didn’t turn out so well (none of them did actuall) but I had to include it… she hopped up there and I caught her in this funny toe-gazing wardrobe re-mixer pose. hee! Do they have one of those types of sites for kids? They totally should.

    The pics are great (I am sure you had to take at least 25 to get the 3 you chose). You are after all dealing with an adorable but somewhat moving target. How is the knitting? 😉

    I absolutely love all the Pheobe projects you have been posting lately. I am THIS CLOSE to cutting into some of my precious japanese fabrics…

    I want to make this one.
    It looks great and I adore the fabric you chose.
    I so get the Laura Ingalls Wilder thing. She wore bonnets from Mailorder all summer and it was my favorite tv show growing up

    Oh! This turned out so well! And isn’t that color wonderful with Phoebe’s coloring? Thank you for sharing your darling children with us bloggers. Phoebe is adorable in this smock…well, she is just downright adorable. Period.

    Would you mind sharing the name of the book you got this pattern from? I looked up the isbn # but couldn’t find it :(
    Thanks!
