This smock is probably my favourite garment from my week of winter sewing. I used this pattern, but instead of joining them all together, I added seams. Essentially, I attached piece 1 and 3, and 2 and 4 together, then cut the front on the fold, and the back as two pieces. It meant that I was able to get the whole smock out of the front and back of a woollen jersey. Just don't forget to add a seam allowance when you cut.
Its red wool on one side
And a narrow patterned corduroy on the other. I decided against a pocket, because I wanted it to be completely reversible.
You can't really tell from this picture, but I sewed the buttons together so that it can be buttoned from either side.
I'd love to say that P adores it, but actually she isn't all that keen on it. Perhaps because it is a bit different from her other clothes, or maybe just because I would actually really like her to wear it.
I have to confess however, that my week of winter sewing was not entirely a success. I decided I would felt a couple of the jerseys that I didn't have much other use for. Sadly the picture below is the after shot. Notice how unfelty they look? Thats because I seem to be incapable of felting anything in my washing machine.
