Painting can be messy, and your doll will want to protect his or her clothing with this cute artist smock. The smock has a fully lined yoke with a gathered skirt section attached to the yoke. The long sleeves have casings at the bottom in which elastic is inserted. Two huge pockets on the skirt section can hold your doll's paint brushes and other painting equipment.
