I May Of Made An Art Smock ???

This afternoon, I had the urge to make myself a top.
This pattern had been stashed away, and the fabric was on sale a while ago,
thought it would make a good test fabric for the pattern.
It did not take long, I just put hat elastic in the neck instead.

Here is the (almost) finished product.
2nd boy laughed from the tramp.
The husband said "hello Gladys" (my MIL)
It's a bit frumpy, and I feel like I have Buzz Lightyear Shoulders.
(actually looks better in the pic, my left hand gives it some shape)

It may just be for painting, if I ever have the urge to do that!
Every now and then I get a bee in my bonnet
about making something for myself to wear,
never turns out how I expect it too.
Why do I bother, should just stick to wht I know.

Do you try and make clothes for yourself ?
Any luck with it?

Enjoy your weekend



  1. Hee hee, don't worry it's not just you! I've made a couple of tops that ended up in the bin. They're really difficult to get right.

  2. I actually don't mind it, but the most important thing has to be that you like it. I say keep trying as when you find something that you do love - you can make it over and over in all different colors for all seasons and again when it wears out!

  3. Whoops! But, I think if you pop a cardy over the top to settle it down a bit it could work a treat!. Good on you for having a go.
    I took a leaf out of you book today and had an afternoon Nana nap. Excellent!

  4. I know where you are coming from but all is not lost. I made a similar pattern and ended up shirring around the bottom over my hips, I also shirred the bottom of the sleeves on one but yours might be a bit short. Nothing to lose. I also agree it might be handy to wear under a cardy.
