Another little dress...

  I made this little dress a couple of years ago just for fun.
I used a very old Erin/Lindsey pattern, by Yvonne Denise.
I've looked for it online and I think it must be out of print.
I'm sure there are lots of similar patterns out there,
but I really like this one.

I'm pretty sure I just made this design up.
If someone recognizes the plate, correct me if I'm wrong!

I really love the colors in this fabric. 
I usually use solid colors because the smocking shows up more clearly on solids.
Sometimes it's fun to smock on a print for a change, isn't it? I tried to use colors that would show up well. There's a tiny spec of pink in the flowers on the fabric that is hard to see in the pictures, but that's why I used pink in the smocking.

Another dress waiting for a future granddaughter...:)


  1. The dress is just lovely! Those little French knot flowers are so sweet. I just discovered your blog and have enjoyed all your posts to date. The little boy shadow work designs are precious. The puppy outfit is charming and so is your beautiful grandson.

    1. Thank you so much! :) That makes me happy! It's hard to know if anyone is reading this. I will keep posting since I know I have a reader or two!
