Description

Some more of my summer/ spring collection (not really collection, but all my dresses lately have been in anticipation for the warm weather!)

I “borrowed” this 1970’s pattern from my mums stash to make this sweet smock from light blue Chambray.

The dress is very swingy so I have to wear little shorts underneath in case I spin around too quickly. The pattern itself also had a very exaggerated 70’s style collar, so I just trimmed it down to be more Peter Pan like.
