The Knitting Smock was the start of the Layercake collection: over-pieces that make you look funky, keep you clean and can be thrown over pretty much any outfit. Whether you’re spinning, weaving, dyeing, knitting, baking a cake, or, on one occasion (that we are aware of), getting married, Smocks can be dressed up or down.
Length from shoulder (size 2): 90 cm (36 in) front and back, dipping to 115 cm (45 in) at the sides – slightly shorter in the smaller sizes.
Size 3 Petite: available both in the Smock as well as the Tabard shape for size 3's of 5'4" or less.
Following here is a guideline; we recommend 5 cm (2 in) positive ease:
Size 0: bust up to 90 cm (36 in) - garment measures 95 cm (38 in)
Size 1: bust up to 107 cm (42 in) - garment measures 112 cm (44 in)
Size 2: bust up to 122 cm (48 in) - garment measures 127 cm (50 in)
Size 3: bust up to 135 cm (53 in) - garment measures 140 cm (55 in)
We also offer limited edition wool Smocks and Tabards, listed HERE. For seasonal news and special offers, sign up for the newsletter (scroll to the bottom of the page).
ABOUT OUT OF STOCKS: if a certain fabric/size shows as out of stock but the website allows you to place an order for it, it means we DO have more fabric, the garment just needs to be made for you, so if you place an order for an out of stock item, please allow 7-10 days for delivery.
"Last chance": colours marked as "last chance" are going to be replaced with a different colour, so if you are keen on a "last chance" garment, please beware that, once out of stock, it will no longer be available and we cannot take special orders for it.
