|Smocking on Emily by Maja's Heirlooms|
I am scrambling to finish my summer sewing before the season ends and school starts. This is a quick smock and sew. (Although, it sat in UFO mode for a few months at my house.)
Emily by, Maja's Heirlooms
Loosely inspired by Ivey Crenshaw's Dress
Pink Pique and brown and pink Renaissance Ribbons (all from my stash)
I liked the simple construction of this dress. I really like the way the smocked bodice is added to the lining. This might be a great first project for a new smocker. My only dislike is the shoulder straps are not pre-sized to the girl, but adjusted and sewn down after they are complete. You could reduce bulk in that are by pre-measuring the straps.
Enjoying every last minute of summer!
