Item details

Smocking by Penelope

This booklet is part of the 'Hows' series of instructional booklets from probably the 1940s/50s

The picture on the front is a lady wearing a smock in an iconic English rural idyll pose!

The booklet contains a brief history of Smocking, along with various methods, patterns and stitches for producing smocks. There is also a pattern for a baby's frock which has Smocking on the chest.

Unfortunately this booklet mentions the use of transfers to be ordered from an address in Manchester - I don't think these will be available now but I am sure an experienced seamstress could make their own
