Miss 5BN is breathing in! - to fit into this lovely smocked dress, this will be the last summer to wear this dress.  Fabric is a floral self print, 100% cotton from Spotlight - several years ago.
Mrs  LG from our sewing group, had made her daughter a gorgeous dress from the same fabric.
Imitation being a form of flattery -- I did ask Mrs LG - if she minded if I bought meterage of the same fabric--and here is the result.

Smocking pattern is  Blush
AS&E Issue 88, p 34

fabric covered buttons add detail
fabric covered piping finishes the collar, yoke and shoulder edges.


  1. Gorgeous!! Can't even tell she's breathing in, looks a perfect fit!

  2. I love using tone-on-tone prints to smock with. And it's in my fave color too! Gorgeous dress and beautiful model!
