Here's Part 3 of my re-post originally from January 2011
Luxuriantly flowered panels of woven cotton offer protection from splatters at front and back. Bias tape is used for ties, and to bind the sailcloth borders.
Flower shapes are sketched on cotton broadcloth, machine satin stitched and cut out. Apron is batiste with cording to accent the gathered skirt.
The fanciful dickey and teardrop designs are machine appliqued and outlined with narrow bias tape. Fabric is all cotton with ties at neck and waist.
I made something similar to the Jester’s Tunic in my Home Economics class in the early 70’s. And of course, I made several of the smocks made from the acrylic fabrics at that time. How many of you made the smocks? I had some really wild ones.

It’s art if it can’t be explained.
It’s fashion if no one asks for an explanation.
It’s design if it doesn’t need explanation.
