Tie one on May challenge

A smock apron to wear out.

Here I am, wearing it out...

(at Manchester Art Gallery). Not too sure I'll wear it that often, mind, I've come to the conclusion smocks are best suited to those whose ribs stick out...

I thought about doing 'proper' smocking (for about 10 seconds) and then cheated a bit by using shirring elastic. And the fabric's gingham which helps keep on line and pattern.

But it's all done by hand, took about 2 days :)

That's lovely :) The ribbon edging is gorgeous too. Hoorah for Manchester Art Gallery too (we went last Weds and had a fab time looking round)

I think you look super cute in your smock. Very hip. Love the braid too.

Thanks for your comment on my blog, I checked out Andi's work and it looks right up my alley. I'm going to start with Breakfast After Noon!

Wow. I am embarrassed to say I've never encountered "real smocking" - now you have me running off to Google :) It looks amazing.
