Sage Smock Dress



The Sage Smock Dress is a pretty, loose fitting tiered midi smock dress with a tie back closure, in seam pockets , three sleeve variations and available in sizes 6 – 24 (Australian standards). 

This pretty dress pattern has three sleeve options. View A has a set in short sleeve which is gathered at the hem and finished with self binding. View B has a regular set in short sleeve and View C is sleeveless with a slightly lower armhole depth.

The Sage Smock Dress has two tiers and is midi length but it would be so easy to omit one tier and make a shorter flirty version. All views have bust darts, in seam pockets and a tie back closure. It is a loose fitting dress with plenty of ease and would look great made up in linen, cottons, rayon, or any soft drapey woven fabric. There is a lot of gathering so keep in mind that a softer fabric is easier to gather.

The Sage Smock dress is a floaty, boho style dress that would look great teamed up with a pair of pretty sandals, flip flops or even some cool sneakers for a great weekend casual vibe. The sleeveless style has a slightly lower armhole depth making it light and breezy,  perfect to  pop over your bathers for a trip to the beach.

If your fabric is less than 150cm wide,  the Lower Tier will need to be cut into 3 equal pieces. The total width of all 3 pieces should equal the total width of the original lower tier.  Sew three seams rather than two and place one seam at the center back and the remaining seams towards the front at notches distributing gathers equally.

You will need approximately 1 extra meter of fabric than the above requirements.
