Smashing Smock!

This top is the smock project from the Anna Maria Horner Book - Seams to Me.

I made no alterations to this one - except for adding some ties so that I could nip the top in a little at the waist. However if I make it again, I think that I w ould like to take some fabric off the arm sleeve edge and just bring it in to expose my shoulders a bit more.

I am a size 12 and made the Medium in the book and it fits quite well.

I just used plain cotton fabric with no stretch.

I am by no means an accomplished sewer and I found this project easy - but I did have to study the instructions very thoroughly.

I will most likely make it again - next time I am going to make it in all the same fabric rather than the contrast.

Great top! I might have to look into that book. :)

Can we see some of your skirts soon?

I'll try and take a pic tomorrow. Harris has been a bit tiresome the past few days.
