Blue smock refashion

Made from one of Misha's old button-down shirts in response to my deep jealousy of all thing smocky.

I can't decide - with the pocket or without?

Also, does it need more in the way of decals, appliques, buttons, etc.? Or is it better as is without embellishment? I'm so wishy-washy about it for some reason. But I do love how it fits on me.

with pockets. and some really cute red buttons, ie. apple buttons. or maybe skull buttons for something a little rock n' roll. it'd be a cool juxtaposition.

I love it's current incarnation (with pocket). It's classic and gracious and makes you look like a famous painter right out of an art history biography.

And I liked the frock without the pocket - assuming there will be layers, which will serve as extra "decoration". I also liked the color very much.

I like it without the pocket...Also, I like clothes that style ("smocky")to be plain, no detailing. It looks great. Please, think about writing tutorials for some of these awesome creations. Anna, you are so talented. I'm so inspired by you.
Thanks,
