My granddaughter Sophie, who has Angelman's Syndrome, couldn't be fitted with large enough bibs as she grew. I took out my sewing machine to solve the problem, and my project, Sophie's Smocks, was born. Now many kids with AS can have a free smock. Feeding is often a messy affair and I want to lighten the burden of the Angel's parents and caregivers.


I buy new and gently used cotton turtlenecks. Supporters donate shirts and donate their time to cut and sew, and their money for postage and materials to keep the project ongoing.


Shirt to Smock



A free smocks can be ordered for children or adults with AS.

I make child size small to adult XL.


Shirt Backs


To get a smock, all you have to do is ask by emailing


Give me your child's US shirt size plus a name and full mailing address including zip. Colors vary so giving us the child's gender is helpful if you don't want "feminine colors" for a boy.



I'll send one ASAP while supplies last.


There's no catch and no obligation. Free means free.



If your child does not have Angelman's Syndrome, but you would like a smock, I would ask for a $10 USD donation to help cover our costs.


A Sophie's Smock is given free and paid for by the profits from the sale of Lois CarrollŐs books. Buy a five-star romance and give a free smock at the same time. Thank you for your support.
