Simplicity 1080: A Smock in Linen

I made the Dottie Angel smock up again, this time with a linen top and a cotton print bottom. The pockets are Liberty lawn that I bought in Paris a couple of years ago (see: best trip ever). I used the same fabric for both the pocket and its trim, and set them off with a bit of welting, which is just bias binding folded in half and used like piping.

You're definitely in a blue mood with these frocks - they're delightful! And I just got an email telling me that my pattern has been shipped!!

I found the pattern at Joanne Fabrics this week; now to see what I can pull together from my stash! I love your blue dress, Anna. Sadly, there have been no trips to Paris for me and no Liberty lawn.

I'm working on my first 1080. I used embroidery floss to make little, vertical straight stitches along the pocket facing. Glad to learn what welting is!
