SKILL LEVEL - Confident beginners

Cute, comfy and effortlessly stylish, the Indigo smock has no fiddly fastenings so you can throw it on and go. Ideal for those who love something easy to make and wear with a floaty relaxed look. The optional exposed frill seams and fluted sleeves elevate it to a stand-out style. And did we mention the dress has pockets?!

Indigo can be made as a bum-covering top that is perfect for wearing with leggings or skinny jeans for everyday style. The dress option looks equally as lovely in floaty viscose fabrics that give it a dressed up, party feel, or in a cotton lawn that is just the ticket for a dreamy day dress.

Sew it with classic gathered seams or elevate it to a stand-out piece in your wardrobe with the pretty exposed frill seam.

Indigo has a bodice shaped with bust darts, gently curved empire waistline, and floaty gathered skirt. Make it as a top with a dipped hem ending at the low hip, or a knee-length dress with a straight hem and pockets (yay!). Choose from three-quarter flounce sleeves or slim-fitting bracelet sleeves. You’ll want to wear one every day of the week.

Indigo includes jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
