The pattern was well written and logical. They have an advanced beginner rating on it and I think that is appropriate. One of the more interesting features of this pattern is that it employs french seaming. A french seam is a way of sewing your seam and finishing the raw edge on the wrong side at the same time. This project was a perfect application for that technique. I often forget about this method when sewing so it was a nice reminder.
All the fabric was purchased at Jo-Ann's on sale dirt cheap. This smock is going to be stained in no time so why spend a fortune right? I am so excited that my boy picked out the mushroom fabric all by himself from my stash. It gives me a warm fuzzy because it reminds me of my childhood in the 70's and now that aesthetic will be one of his memories too. I keep going back to the store and buying a yard here and there...inventing reasons why I need more. Alex thinks I should just give it up and buy a bolt!
