Strawberry polkadots

Another smocky top, this one made of stretch cotton. The bodice is a really lovely strawberry print that is thin and breezy. The seamstresses amongst you will note that I said 'thin'; it was a total pain in the bum to sew with its curling edges.

The square neck bit is red and white polkadot jersey, and I think I should have interfaced it, it did not hold it's shape well. But I'm not going to show you that... Instead I'll show you how comfortable it is for the wearer. It absolutely does not impede fence climbing.
