Isn't she the cutest thing ever? The pattern came from Australian Smocking and Embroidery magazine and has been a favorite of my student, Ann Greer, from the first time she laid eyes on it.
After several smocking lessons and tutorial sessions (even a few "rip that out before you go on" sessions) she has not only mastered smocking but pleating as well! We had many "oohhh this fabric would be pretty in...." and "is this the right color ribbon" discussions together and just sharing the progress with show and tell.
Her great grand baby's blue eyes match the outfit (and the bow-yes it has to be big, we're from the South) perfectly!
Great job Mrs. Ann!
Get inspired from my STUDENT SHOWCASE!
