Black Forest Smock
Folkwear - sewing patterns for ethnic & historic clothing & costumes
This traditional smock was called a Kittel, or over-garment, worn by workers in Germany, Switzerland and France. Soft pleats fall from a wide neckband. Sleeves connect to side panels with gussets and are pleated at the wrists into buttoned cuff bands. Shoulder yokes, pocket welts, neckband and cuffs were often decorated with chain-stitching (design and instructions are included inside pattern).
Our Black Forest Smock can be worn by men as an over-shirt and by women as a mid-calf length dress.
Suggested fabrics: Soft or crisp fabrics such as linen, homespun, broadcloth, gingham, denim, featherweight corduroy or lightweight wool.
