Description

I recently got this dress out and a few repairs made to it to pass on down to my oldest granddaughter (and then to her sister).  This was the dress my daughter wore to first day of kindergarten in 1990.  It is a Bishop style and smocked with a chart called "Party Ribbons".  

It is light and airy and will be a good choice for the tropical climate where my daughter and her family live for the time being.

So beautiful! I would love to learn how to do this. Did you pleat by hand?

Astitchaday

Thank you.

No, LOL, no hand pleating for me. This was done by a hand crank pleater machine that belonged to someone else. I really would love to get one of my own.

Astitchaday

Me, too!

Astitchaday Do you have any recommendations? I used to have a friend do my pleating years ago and I never paid attention to what kind she used. She moved years ago and we are out of touch.

No, I don't. Just dreaming. :)
