bird up: smock redux

2 06 2010

This is how we take a costume piece (Bebe’s Renaissance Festival smock) and turn it into everyday wear for a hot summer.

1. Add fun bias tape to sleeves. This trim has blue polkadots and tiny bird silhouettes (Trefle’ bias tape from Superbuzzy).

2. Go crazy with stamps and/or fabric markers.

3. Wear with pants, shorts, or bathing suit.

And why “bird up”? We heart Charlie Parker, yes we do: you should see Bebe dancing to “Salt Peanuts,” so funny and happy.
