Dress Pattern: The Wendy Smock

Inspired by the traditional artist’s smock – think Monet wafting around his garden at Giverny with brush in hand, and then refashioned for us modern creative ladies 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 neck opening positioned on the shoulder seam, or choose to finish without an opening. Two pretty and practical patch pockets are an easy addition.
