1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: button shirt to toddler dress recon *NEW MINTY FRESH TUTORIAL* on: April 18, 2009 11:14:20 AM
adorable! thanks for the very clear instructions. We have a grandson but if a sister or girl cousin comes along, I'd love to make some of these! I was looking for a smock idea using recycled shirts... maybe this could be adapted to that.

thanks, a bunch!

this is great - I want to make some smock bibs for our grandson and will use this pattern, saves me some trial and error on sizing, etc.

re: washing vinyl - I used to make vinyl dustcovers for computers and made some special ones with fabric over the vinyl for friends and family. Also some bibs for great nieces and nephews [and my dad when he was ill and shaky]- I did them with vinyl sandwiched between fabric too - terry and cotton. They were pullover style with ribbed cotton 'collars'. I don't know if the computer covers were ever washed but the bibs certainly were, and if you have the right sort of PVC vinyl, they are definitely washable.

When our kids were babies, we still had some old style plastic 'pants' for over their diapers and some then then-new diaper covering snap sided pants [if that makes sense]; these all went in the washer and dryer, absolutely. Best way to check if your vinyl is the right type is to make a little swatch of the layers you;ll use for the smock and wash and dry it. Or go on faith, which is usually my method. ;-)

great site - just found it today - if I get more bibs or smocks made, I will try to post a photo

cheers, m
