The French Smock is a casual classic with a wide range of design options. These includes different shapes of bibs, additional trims and curved patch pockets, along with two different front fastenings – a button placket or a zip. The choice of fastening will determine the character of your garment, and you can play with the other optional features to suit the overall look and feel of the piece.
With this pattern, you can make your own truly one-of-a-kind garment by choosing your favorite features and designing something that is personal to you.
