Another variation on the MCalls top seen in previous project though without the frill neckline and closer to the original in the pattern. (Doing a lot of smocks lately – they re just so easy to wear with jeans and I am channelling the Michelle Pfieffer look in Ladyhawke – haha! )
The neckline on this proved to be even more gaping – in fact the whole bust was “coming away” at the front and I had to unpick and add some big tucks in the front. It’s actually very lovely quality heavy linen and was quite expensive, but trying to do fewer things better these days
