Description

I put this under Embroidery and Embellishments rather than sewing for kids, because of all the hand smocking on the dress.  I don't have the pattern anymore, so can't cite that.

This was worn by my daughter in 1994 for her first communion.

I hand smocked the bodice and wove ribbons through.  Purchased lots of beaded and lace trim for the dress.  The little flowers at the waistband are from my own wedding gown and her veil is made from my own wedding veil.

Just beautiful!! I made dresses for my girls and I even smocked...but NOTHING like this! I am impressed!

Have you put your smocked project up here? I'd love to see them.
