Vintage smock

Ive had this vintage fabric for a while now, I think it must have been a bed sheet at one point! It is my experiment fabric!....you know, when your just trying out a new pattern and you don't want to risk the 'good stuff'!

I'm not sure the colours quite right for The Whirlwind, It makes her look very white!Good job she looks like me, else people might think i stole this baby!

I think i may need to loosen the elastic round the bottom of the sleeve as they keep getting stuck half mast up her chunky arms.

This is The Whirlwinds favourite spot to watch T.V. It drives me mad! I mean seriously you could watch our TV from across the street its so big, but she is only happy unless her face is right in it and her greasy paw prints are all over it. We even bought her a cute chair from Ikea to sit in, ( you can just see it in the previous pic!) She does love this chair and will happily sit in it whilst munching a snack, but the moment Yojojo, Deli and the gang come on screen that's it, shes off to kiss the screen!

Admiring the new fishies!
Thanks to Louise at sewscrumptious for the link to that fab zip tutorial, by flossieteacakes (scroll down to the 2nd tutorial) Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but went out and bought a hand full of zips in preparation, hopefully one eve this week will give itself up to me!

Lovely smock top. You are very clever! Good luck with the zips. I've spent many an evening swearing quietly at zips in my sewing room!!

I love that smock top and think the fabric is ace. Not my normal kind of print, but I really love it as this top! What pattern did you use?

Oh, and my kids watch TV from the same position...

Love the smock but the boxing day dress has to be my favourite.
