My daughter needs a smock for kindergarten does anyone have any ideas on how I can whip up a quick one? I was thinking about using a button down shirt but have no clue about the execution.

I don't want to just send her in with a white t-shirt


HELP!!

http://stilldottie.blogspot.com/2007/08/apron-for-divya.html this if for an adult, but the basics are there and I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult to figure out from one of your child's own shirts or dresses...

If you have a dress pattern lying around, something like this would work (bonus using the buttons/placket from the button down shirt!) : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=148994.0

Hope one of those helps Smiley

I used to teach kindergarten and the kids would just wear large button down shirts, with the sleeves cut and hemmed to a decent length.

I think the most important part about a smock for a  child this age is that she should be able to put it on and take it off herself--not requiring a teacher's help.  Not only does this help your child feel independent and "grown up" and in control, it also save the teacher from going nuts helping 20 kids put on smocks at the same time! :-)
