Vintage smock shirt

May 19, 2011

I have been thinking of making this shirt for a while now...

I used this vintage pattern of Mum's that looks like it's been a round since the 70's. I'm sure she whipped up a few for us (four girls to sew for plus two boys!). I love the fabric too. The shirt took me a couple of hours as the gathering around the yolk is tricky and the yolk is handstitched on the inside. I think I will make it again though - maybe the sleeveless version. I love the style.

Isabella insisted on pushing Minnie in her pram to playgroup this morning, so we took some pics along the way!

Project Details:
Pattern - Style 1106
Fabric - American Independence by Sara Morgan
Bits and Bobs - Three cream vintage buttons, elastic for wristbands

I'm sharing today over at Kootoyoo.
