(Can you tell I have a hard time coming up with titles sometimes?)
My love of ruffles continues. See this?
This is smock 'N' from my beloved Stylish Dress Book. I haven't tried to make anything from the book (I've only looked through it and sighed about three hundred times), as I am a bit intimidated and worried that even the largest of the three sizes included will not fit me. I decided to start with this one since it looks simple enough. And it is! Three pieces cut on a fold and bias tape. I made the pattern today; I enlarged it a tiny bit as I traced it. I sewed up a quick muslin using an old bedsheet, totally lazy-style: I sewed it on my serger (ha! Including the bust darts!) and didn't bother to make the bias tape. Ten minutes later, I saw that it fit, and I was pleased, but... is this too apron-like? If yes, is there anything wrong with an apron-like smock? Please advise. It looks great on her, but on me, I'm not so sure. Oh to be an A cup!
