Here's a little smock I made recently for the baby. It was a very easy project. To make the pattern, I cut up an old plastic smock that had ripped apart. (If you're interested in the pattern, send an e-mail and I could cut one out for you.) Anyway, this only took about 45 minutes to make. I put elastic around the cuff and bias tape around the neck. I left about eight inches of bias tape on each side of the neck to tie on the smock. This makes a great smock for doing art projects, or for eating really messy food like spaghetti and yogurt.
