Ghanaian Smock by Folkwear

Ghanaian Smock by Folkwear

A striking top, the Ghanaian Smock is worn by men and women (women’s version has elastic at the waist).  Men often wear the Smock over trousers or shorts, and it can be worn by women over pants, leggings, or when made longer, as a dress on its own.  Long or short sleeved shirts can be worn underneath the Smock.


This pattern is great for fabric artists, weavers, and fabric lovers.  Almost any fabric will do, from your own woven strips to regular yardage – just tear or cut it into strips and sew the strips together.


A kufi cap completes the outfit, and is included in the pattern.  Embroidery motifs for Smock are also included.
