smocks are good

a friend of mine sent me this very simple smock pattern that i knew i wanted to try out for collette. once i finally found the time and motivation to do a little something in the studio, uh i mean basement, from start to finish this little number took me 45 minutes. seriously. pretty good right? i'll say. some brown corduroy, beautiful trim from lisa and a fake "serged" edge and done. i could have made it even easier (remember easy means lazy for me) on myself and just edged the thing in bias tape but i only had extra wide brown so instead i opted for a quarter inch fold over and some tight zigzag stitching. this was by far the longest process. i really want one of these for myself. is that wrong? hmm... i would show you this smock on collette, but really, she never ever ever wakes up from a nap happy. ok, maybe like twice, but yesterday wasnt one of those days. you would think after getting all that snuggly good rest in she would be beaming. not so. not even with a cracker. oh well. must take after her father...

How do you do your fake serged edge? I don't have a serger but I love the look - I didn't know there was a way to "fudge" it!

i think we have the same sewing attention span...so, yes, I want to try this! But then you did that quilt, so I'm not sure...
it's fantastic, but the grumpy faced flickr picture is even better....

Hannah- I LOVE this. I mean it.

I'm going to dream of this for myself for days. I totally may have to copy you and try to make one adult-sized and similar after the holidays. Over a tight long sleeve t-shirt? Oh- too good.
