A simple smock dress for sunny summer days; this version is a one off and is named Ethel. Sleeveless, oversized bodice and a full gathered tier at bustline. The silk organza is pre-washed and soft and papery; perfect for wearing in the heat. Opening and tie fastening at back neck. Hand painted in a soft pistatchio colour it features a faded check pattern plus spaltter and drip marks on the skirt. Hand smocked panel appliqued onto the front bodice is a nod to traditional smocks worn by farmers. Raw seams and topsticthing give this garment a soft, lived in feel; it looks as if it's been around for a long time already.
