If you're looking for transitional winter-to-spring outfit ideas and you want to make it yourself, you've come to the right place.

This super-flattering smock dress or top pattern is a wardrobe winner. Featuring cuffed sleeves (in two lengths) and loosely gathered frills for a romantic yet contemporary style, you'll be able to wear it again and again throughout the tear.

You can easily layer the dress up with a poloneck for chillier weather or, for an effortless casual look come Spring, match the top with your favourite jeans or pair the dress with trainers.

Depending on the occasion, try bold florals for a refreshing statement or loosely woven cottons for relaxed dressing - and don’t forget to accessorise with statement earrings or a headband.

We used cotton poplin for the smock top from Dragonfly Fabrics ,cotton gauze for the knee-length dress from Fabric Godmother and viscose for the midi-length dress from BeyondThePinkDoor.

The pattern pieces, cutting layouts and sewing instructions are all on the Prima pattern.
