Two Art Smocks

Oliver+S Art Smocks by nest full of eggs
 Miss C has outgrown her 2 art smocks: the one I sewed in October 2011 and the one I sewed in January 2012.

So of course I sewed her 2 new ones. It's nice to have an extra one, you know, when one is dirty in the hamper or when a friend comes over for a visit :)

Project Details
Pattern: Oliver + S Art Smock from the Little Things to Sew book (difficulty level of 2 out of 4 scissors)
Size: Large (7-10)
Mods: the 2 patch pockets were eliminated
Notions: Velcro, 3/8" elastic
Art Smock 1: blue floral polka dot is Heritage Studio Collection by Fabric Traditions, Kona baby pink
Art Smock 2: Hello Kitty Glitter cotton, Chic Bebe dots pink/white

I wanted to give you a peek inside to show you that the instructions give the results of a very polished interior. The sleeves and side seams all are French seams. Kids are tough on the things they wear, so this art smock will stand the test of time.

Once the fabric was cut out, it took less than 2.5 hours to sew one up.

Some of the best features are the practical long sleeves and with the Velcro closure in the back so she can put it on and take it off all by herself. It's really a fabulous design and pattern. It's my favorite project from the Little Things to Sew book.

She picked out all of the fabrics herself, so I have a very pleased customer :)
