Little Vintage Smock With Collar
How to make a garment for your beloved child that looks and feels like it came from the very highest-end European shop? Sublime yarns and patterns. Here you see extreme simplicity with exquisite detailing. The ‘bib’, hem, cuffs, and bands are only a twisted rib-- but look at how the collar perfectly echoes that design element. The ‘skirt’ is belled for a 19th-century touch; sleeves are set in. The beret, with all its gentle increases and decreases, is knit flat and seamed; the gorgeous little twisted cord and ‘berries’ are both playful and touching.
