This review is from: Stylish Dress Book: Simple Smocks, Dresses and Tops (Paperback)
Most designs in this book are loose fitting as the items are made without zips. A few garments have buttons but they are mainly slip over the head dresses and tops. The diagrams are easy to follow and full size patterns are provided although you will need to trace them off. The sizing does only go to about a UK 12-14 (large!) but could be scaled up if you are a reasonably confident pattern grader. The beauty of these garments is that mostly they are so simple not much can go wrong! Perfect for showing off lovely fabrics. There is a simple coat pattern on page 20 that fastens with press studs and looks very chic. Remember it is in the title Simple Smocks, don't expect fitted!
