Summer Smocking

I was requested by a work colleague, to sew a smocked dress for the little Grand daughter - who was to be celebrating her 1st birthday.  I had not smocked for a year or more - but absolutely enjoyed the process again. The actual smocking is quite portable, this was mostly done, whilst waiting at the children's various sporting events.

Love a tucked hem, not only does it add weight to the skirt to hold it down, also is quick to sew.

Smocking pattern is Angels Kiss

Gorgeous tufted voile purchased from Dreaminfabric On Ebay Aus.

Peter Pan collars in the making.

This has now been given and gifted to the little Granddaughter, hoping for some warmer weather for the little Princess to wear this creation.
