I own many smocks but this is my first self-made one. The pattern is a simple dress pattern but i modified the front to make it a button up front. Then it also seemed to sag about everywhere so i added the 2 darts to bring it into shape at the front. The sleeves were also really wide and they were a bit too 70’s for me – even though i love retro things, so i made them smaller so i didnt look like a post-modern folk singer.
