Making the Wendy Smock

Inspired by the traditional artist’s smock – think Monet wafting around his garden t at Giverny with brush in hand, and then refashioned for us modern creatives to enjoy. You will be able to create your own generous and loose fitting top with 3/4 length sleeves. This is a versatile pattern with 3 neckline options: self bound with either a faced opening at the centre front or a side opening positioned on the shoulder seam. Or choose to finish without an opening. Two pretty and practical patch pockets are an easy addition.

Vintage fabric suggestions

This style is perfect to keep you cool during the summer. I’ve pulled together an edit of soft floaty fabrics that suit this drapey style smock.
