Pink Lovehearts

This smocked dress is on its way west, across our vast country to Perth, Australia.  Miss M the new owner will be wearing it to a wedding,  Miss M is just beginning to crawl, I made matching bloomers, and showed Miss M's Mum how to tuck the front of the dress into the bloomers -- enabling Miss M to crawl, without the need to faceplant onto the floor--when she became caught on the hem of the dress.

Triple Love
I have lost count of the times I have smocked this design, always a favourite request.  The dress is 100% cotton - soft pink with a very fine windowpane check detail.  Just gorgeous.

Whip stitch piping adds an interesting detail to the piped yoke, collar and sleeve cuffs.

Hem detail

A tucked sewn hem is a quick finish,  as well as adding detail to the gorgeous dress.

I hope to have photos of Miss M in all her finery at the family wedding - interstate.
