antique french smock
Layered over lj struthers cropped pants or shorts, this antique linen garment is an original piece of textile history, and a surprisingly versatile addition to your summer wardrobe. Featuring a deep V opening with a simple round neckline and mid-length sleeves (perfect for rolling) it is subtly hand embroidered in red with the initials 'F.A'. The condition of this heavy linen is a remarkable testament to its quality and workmanship, mended and cared for over many decades.
Naturally, the condition of this smock tells of a working history of use, and its small imperfections (including a small indigo mark at front) are part of its heritage - please refer to the photographs for detail. We recommend hand washing in a mild detergent such as liquid Castile soap, avoiding use of stain removers or spot cleaning.
