Synopsis:

The smock-frock was worn by countrymen in England and Wales during the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It was essentially a practical garment and represented a true folk craft developed by ordinary people. This book traces the development of the smock, its makers, its wearers and the revivals of interest which have taken place. About the author Maggie Hall's work as a freelance television costume designer has led her to develope an interest in folk costume and traditional needlework. She began making smocks using patterns and designs from old smocks and has since sold many throughout Britain, Europe and North America.
