The Mul Mul Smock is made in a thin, soft, muslin style of traditional Bengali woven fabric.

It is the sheerest of the Poetwear fabrics, and can be worn in many ways.

It looks good with nude, white or coloured slips, or no slip.

It is lovely with longer or shorter lengths to play with layering or with trouses or skirts underneath or nothing at all.


The cut of the dress is wide and loose in the traditional artist smock style.

As such there is one free size option available. Fitting UK sizes 6 - 26.


There are fine gathered pleats at the neck and wrists and it can be worn belted with the fabric tie or worn loose. Worn on its own, layered or with trousers.


The fabric will soften beautifully and can be machine washed at 40 degrees.


The flat measurements of the garment are approximately:                   

Chest 78cm 

Cuff width 13cm

V neck 22cm

Length 105 cm

Hem width 90cm

Fabric tie 200cm x 5cm 


Indian hand-woven finest weight cotton:

  •  40 degree machine wash
  • 100% cotton
  • Made in Kolkata India
  • Variations/unevenness in the cloth may be viewed as the beautiful traces of the craftsperson's hand and are welcomed by Poetwear as the individual character of each piece.
  • The Poetwear label is hand stiched. The workshop asked for this detail as the embroidery is traditionally womans work whereas screenprinting work would go to the men.
