Oxford Shirt Art Smocks

I am a new art teacher.
I also am a slob.
My clothes need protection from the dangers of the art room.
I needed a
inexpensive way
to create some art smocks
that I could wear in my new classroom.
I needed them to be big enough to cover me completely.
My clever solution was to make these clever smocks out of stripey men's shirts!

I cut off the collars.

I even recycled the cuff of the sleeve to make a pocket! Pockets are a must!

I made a short sleeve version, too.

In my next post I will give a little tutorial on how to put these fun little art smocks together!

is there a kids' version, too? :)

Karen, I hope everything is going well as you adjust (yet again) to a new teaching role!
