And it takes me back to my childhood when my mother made dresses like this for me and my two sisters. She taught me when I was small and I smocked a few doll's dresses. You may have inspired me to do a nightie, since I don't seem to like any of the ones I see. Thanks for sharing. WendieReplyDeleteSharlene WashingtonMonday, May 03, 2010How fun! I do smocking too. I used to teach at a heirlom sewing shop and when my students would lament over not so perfect work, "You can't see on a galloping horse". I think your dress is absolutely adorable and will make some little girl very happy.ReplyDeleteLeslieMonday, May 03, 2010I love this little dress. She will look adorable.
