|This is my linen smock, which I made using Drea Leed's customised pattern (see links section for her website). I had to alter the pattern a bit as the sleeves started too far down my shoulders. The sleeves, in fact, were a nightmare, as I originally wanted them to be gathered and very full - but I miscalculated the measurement, and they were too short - I had to draft my brilliant mum in to help me salvage them. In the end, I had to settle for not so full sleeves with no gathers!||
