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.
