Betsy Fry Women's Blouse with Seashore Hand Smocking made with Liberty Katie and Millie Fabric Edition 15
For women who support women, comes this sensational smocked smock. Named after the prison reformer Betsy Fry, who fought for the rights and protection of female inmates, this is a blouse for warm hearts and brave souls. Set to work in style with its stunning central smocked panel in costal tones of spearmint and dusty pink interspersed with diminutive pink French knots. Made from Liberty Katie and Millie Tana Lawn ® fabric, it features an elegant a-line shape, generous frill collar and frilled, smocked cuffs - all edged with handworked cross stitching in spearmint threads. A showstopper on its own, the frilled collar and cuffs work beautifully under a knit, keeping you fabulous no matter where your fighting spirit takes you!

* Measurements are approximate. As a handmade item there will be natural variation across pieces.
Due the way our hand smocked pieces are pleated and sewn, our clothes offer a very versatile fit - there is natural stretch in all hand pleated smocks. For this reason we offer fewer, bridge sizes. This means more room for growth and less waste.
Below you will find measurements for our Girls' and Women's Sizes. Please note that as our pieces are made by hand, there will be natural variation between pieces so the measurements below are approximate. If you have any questions, do come and talk to us firstname.lastname@example.org.
All measurements in centimetres.
In general our girl's fit is “Classic British” meaning dresses are designed to hit just below the knee and blouses sit at the lower waist level. At the beginning of the age range dresses will reach to mid calf; at the upper end of the range they will hit above the knee.
Most of our styles will comfortably fit your child beyond the age range specified: elasticated sleeves, tie straps and sashes allow you get as much as possible from each outfit. Better for you and better for the planet.
