Eventually got round to making my wool blanket smock. I used a pattern that I adapted to what I wanted. Quite pleased with the result as it's my first clothing sewing project

Most excellent smock there.
Gave me a good pointer
I’ve been thinking of making one out of an old army blanket with cuffs & bottom of smock in waxed canvas, leather front tie with antler ends..
Did you make it by hand or machine?

With a machine...I've got an old hand singer but it needs a service so borrowed the wife's electric one! I can dig out the details of the pattern I bought if you like?

Better than mine, but then I had no pattern and made it up as I went along! Well done.
When are you starting to take orders... a nice little lockdown business with a captive customer base here. :)

That looks great. I would be very interested to find out where you got the pattern it is based on as I have been looking for good reason to "need" to buy a sewing machine ;)
Amazing how handy a sewing machine is especially for keeping oneself occupied during these times!
Here's a link to the pattern I bought....

Well bugger me, I was walking past the bins a couple of months ago & someone chucked an old singer out..(can’t beat a good scrat in the bins). Gave it my daughter & she said there’s knowt wrong with it?
