These smocks have a lovely pleat and button detail around the neck.

Re-purposing an adult shirt and jeans into a child's outfit.
An outfit I probably won't be duplicating for myself. And over the knee socks in summer? I guess the breezy mini skirt cools her off.
I was a little disappointed in this issue. I think maybe it's just that now that I own a copy of this magazine for each season, things are starting to get duplicated. Loose cotton pants, smocks, scarves, room shoes and bags--there are only so many ways to make them and some of the stuff just looks the same as the other issues I have. It's very likely I might reconsider when the next magazine is out, but I'm thinking it might be time to try something new.
And adding to my list of dang it! things I've done, I realized today I bought online postage for a package last week, then bought it again yesterday. A customer ordered a skirt from me, I printed the postal label and then she requested a custom made skirt for her younger daughter. With work, it took me almost a week to finish it, and when she paid me, I just automatically clicked through the Paypal link and printed another label. So I paid for postage twice. Not a big money loss, but still makes me shake my head and mutter a bit.
