The Clara Folk Smock Blouse has been designed using authentic vintage textiles and vintage patterns. The blouse features unique fabrics and hand embroidered needlework. Each finished patchwork 'mash-up' tells a story and features quirky characters from the last century. The style is an easy fit smock in a shorter length which works brilliantly with this season's high waisted denim and skirts. Our garments are handmade in Dorset, England.
