This past Monday, the delightful Baroness Von Vintage of Tea With the Vintage Baroness blogged about a couple of 1930's smock patterns that she found at Cemetarian. Here's one of the patterns she found:
The Baroness commented that these 1930's smocks are so scarce that when someone happens to find one, they don't quite know what it is that they've got. And when they try to sell it, it's common for the smock to be mislabeled as clothing from another era, and possibly even a mini dress!
Well, I was one of the lucky ones that happened to stumble across one of these smocks a number of years ago. And just as the Baroness said - I didn't know what in the world it was! It hung in my closet, unsold, for the longest time because I didn't know what era it was from, or how it should be worn. It was a mystery. All I knew was that I found the design and fabric absolutely intriguing!
