Quick smock fix

Took a quick break today from pattern modification and cutting out dresses. My son’s preschool uses smocks that velcro closed in the back… Or at they used to velcro closed, but the velcro had given out. The teachers had been using anything from binder clips to duct tape to keep the smocks on, so I volunteered to fix them. Eight smocks came home with my son on Friday.

Here is the before:

And here is one of the afters:

All eight are now done and ready to be dropped back off tomorrow morning!



Thanks for stopping by!

I have been sewing as long as I can remember, starting with a toy sewing machine and sitting next to my mom as she worked away on her machine.

After watching me hand sew a Halloween costume for our daughter in 2011, my husband bought me my first sewing machine for Christmas that year, and I have been crafting away ever since! I primarily make clothing, but have occasionally ventured out into other areas.

I both make my own patterns and work from store-bought patterns. I’ve been Facebooking my sewing projects for the past year, but this blog will allow me to post in a little more detail about each one. I can make custom versions of many of these items – just let me know if you’re interested, and enjoy looking around!
