Happy New Year & Smocking

Happy New Year to everyone in blogland - hope it's filled with lots of creativity.  I have resolved to complete some UFOs this year.  With this in mind I revisited a smocked dress I made for a little 1 year old's birthday in Sept.  I replaced the piping and 'rejigged' but although it's now finished, it's not my best work.  I had trouble getting the facings to sit flat.  It's wearable but only just.  I didn't want to waste all the smocking I'd done so I hope it still fits Isabelle and that she gets some wear out of it.


  1. Beautiful smocking and cute dress it is annoying when facings don't sit nicely.

  2. It looks lovely to me and happy New year

  3. What a cute dress! I can't tell you had any problems with it. I wish I knew how to smock!
