I'm pretty happy with this garden smock. It's for a blog-pal swap; Lauren is making me a little art piece in exchange. Lauren's blog (Alice Lands) is no more, boo-hoo...but hopefully she'll resume things once she's found more time for it. These blog updates do take time.
I guess I should explain a little more about this apron smock, which is just another one of these, with tucks instead of gathers, and with the addition of an embroidered garland of flowers that I sketched out and embroidered using a satin-stitch. For the straps and armholes I used 1-inch wide cotton twill tape folded in half. The back is open and ties at the neck. And there's a big pocket on one side. Which you can see is empty. But not for long...I will be including a little surprise inside it now that I outted this!
