A Contemporary Dorset Smock

Rosalind created this smock with the aim of making a smock that would not be too bulky in wear and therefore be particularly suited to women. She wanted the smock to feature the traditional embroidery techniques of smocking and Dorset feather stitch and also incorporate Dorset buttons. It is loosely based on an unusual short, ceremonial smock attributed to Job Green, a shepherd from Toller Porcorum, in the late 19th century and held at the Dorset County Museum, Dorchester
It is worked in indigo dyed linen and richly embroidered in bright cotton threads.
To fit up to 42" chest and length from nape of neck to hem is 65cm.
The smock has a plain front and a small panel of smocking in the back. The sleeves have smocking at the sleeve head and at the wrist. The collar, cuffs and borders to the smocking are decorated with colourful Dorset feather stitch. The cuffs close with matching Dorset Cross Wheel buttons.


2008  Dorset Arts and Crafts Association Dorset Shield for Traditional Dorset Crafts Winner. 

A Dorset Carpenter's Smock.

This was a modern interpretation of a mid 19th century carpenter's smock belonging to Amalek Old.  The original smock was a round smock but Rosalind made her version with a fully buttoned front opening featuring Dorset Cross Wheel buttons.  The smocking and Dorset feather stitch patterns were very similar to those on the original smock.
