This little smock is my knit version of a little gathered blouse which is one of my very favorite garments to sew for a little girl.
Just like the sewn version the details include a gathered bodice and knitted “piping” along with slightly gathered sleeves and a single button at the back. A gentle scoop neckline and set in sleeves keep it proper yet comfortable in a soft cotton blend.
