Back in October, I pleated 4 or 5 dresses to smock ~ then life happened and the smocking didn't ~ I pulled out 2 to get started on & one of them is almost finished! The top picture is the stitching around the neckline of the bishop dress, The bottom pic is the sleeve detail. I had pulled out turquoise, yellow, and hot pink threads to smock with but the fabric is so bright you couldn't see the smocking. I finally settled on using 4 strands of white.
In 2 weeks I am going to take my first heirloom sewing class ~ I am excited about this opportunity!
Below is a picture of the project the class will do ~
