I was so fascinated by the smocking technique that I have already made two versions of the Manon dress, by Ma Petite Fabrique.

A nice teardrop closure in the back, a collar worked with smocks, puff sleeves and smocks, this dress is really very romantic. Lined except in the sleeves, it’s ideal for light weight fabrics.

For the first version, in black and white wool blend, I cut the top to the length indicated for the blouse and shortened the length of the skirt accordingly. The second version, in blue wool blend, is the original one, not modified. I’ll tell you, I prefer the first one. Perhaps also because for the blue dress I used a 32-thread Stragier poplin as lining but it is too thick for this model (alas I had run out of cotton voile).

  Let me know what you think! 🙂

🍎 See you soon! 🍎
