That's a perfectly adorable smock for a perfectly adorable girl. Your daughter is so beautiful!

This garden smock is adorable...everything about it, but I especially like the eyelet trim. Your sweet garden helper looks adorable too! Love Susan Branch's website and have a few of her books. Wish I could go check out her new shop, but like you would probably wait 'til things died down a bit. Maybe you could find a gardening friend or neighbor who would help you dig up the roses in exchange for getting to keep them? Course if they were neighbors, I guess they have deer dropping by for dessert too!

me: actually most of my neighbors have very tall and electrified fences around their yards. i'd rather adjust my "offerings" than resort to creating a compound and shutting the wildlife out. i'm sure i can find a few friends in town though that might like the roses, that way i can still visit them!

LOL! In the time it took me to write my comment Isabelle posted her remarks....both really are adorable Vicki!

Suzanne

I Keep reading your weblog and I keep loving it!

The smock is adorable. Do you have a pattern? I have three daughters and would love to make smocks for them. thank you

me: yes, it's made from a really old pattern from 1972; simplicity #5272.

Oh that smock is wonderful! I wouldn't want it ever to get dirty! Maybe I would use it just as a 'lets go around and see how things are growing' type of smock, haha.

Happy Mother's Day freind!! xo.

Sweet little smock! I was just looking around for an appropriate pattern to make myself a gardening smock of some sort ..in a nice floral. I know what I am looking for..now to find it.
Happy Mother's Day, ~vicki!

Adorable photos (that watering can looks almost big enough for her to climb in - ala' Peter Rabbit!). What a pretty garden smock.
I hadn't heard about the Susan Branch store opening - I love her artwork; and the San Luis Obispo area. Now I have one more reason to want to visit (but like you, I think I'll wait for the crowds to thin out a bit). Remember the book/movie/tv show "Please don't eat the daisies"? That's what your deer tale made me think of - Maybe you could put up a sign "Please don't eat the roses!" :>)
Have a happy Mother's Day, Vicki!

This little life of yours is just like a picture book...

Meg

That's a beautiful smock, probably the prettiest of all I have seen around the blogs lately - perfect for a wee girl. I might be a copycat and sew a couple for my own girls.

Angela

This is so precious, did you use a pattern? And shes a doll too!

Clarice

Of course another thing we have in common. I have all of SB books. And would so love to have been at her shop opening, but yes it was probably crazy. I do hope to go one day. I love your smock, very spring like. Clarice

Blair

I would also love to know specific on any pattern you used (or not). That smock is darling, so is your model, I love her blue crocs, my daughter has purple ones she wore all last summer.

Linda

Very pretty. Pink gingham is one of my most favorite kinds of fabric.
