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 ; )
