What are you most proud of? I am proud that someone's little girl was able to wear the dress and enjoy it as it was meant to be enjoyed. I personally created the pattern because no smocking plate pattern would suit me for what I had in mind. I loved the way it turned out and was so excited to be able to give it to my new neighbors for their precious gift from God!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take a class in smocking if it is available. There are also a couple good books on the market about Smocking A-Z or something like that and they will be VERY beneficial to you as you embark upon the craft of smocking. It is enjoyable but I find that I forget how to do it if I put it down too long, so I have to reteach myself everytime I pick up a smocking project. This is fairly new to me just because I have not completed very many smocked items.

This is beautiful! I found some degree of healing in finishing things I started for my lost babies - I hope this completed dress has been a blessing to you. Best wishes.

I'm sorry you went through that. It just felt RIGHT to give it to our neighbor's daughter, like it was hers all along. :)

I have been trying to find instruction on smocking. Country Bumpkin (Australia) used to sell lovely magazines and books but they are out of business, I think. I shall look for the A to Z. Thank you for the advice and the inspiration.
