smock dress

16 October 2014


Last night I made this simple smock dress from the fabric from Dashwood Studio. This pattern is from their September Blue collection and it is a very light and soft lawn cotton.


It has side pockets and cut out/tie shoulders...


I got the idea for the shape from a 1970s dress that I have. I did actually intend for it to be longer, but as I don't usually make adult clothes, I didn't have quite enough fabric. It's a bit summery but will be nice over the top of my thermals this autumn ; )

  1. Hi Artemis, thanks for sharing the beauty of Dashwood Studios' fabric - after seeing your last post on clothes you made for Pehr using the September Blue line, I ordered some that I can't wait to turn into a quilt!

  7. Hiya! I wondered if you could double check that a couple of messages I sent via your Rust shop aren't in your Spam folder? Thanks so much. Victoria x

  8. I've been lusting over smocks for some time now, and toying with the idea of just creating my own, is it a fairly easy pattern to make? Anything that has pockets is a winner for me too!

  9. Hello, I have just had my Saturday morning 'fix' from your blog.Thank you for the time and effort you put into this wonderful read, I love it! Please can you tell me where you have got the bulb lights around your window? Are they fixed or the string type? Thanks again. Sara Bath
