What are you most proud of? Being able to clothe my child in adorable one-off outfits that cost virtually nothing, by using up old remnants.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I put lace stripes on the yoke, but last time I made it, I took the time to embroider the yoke and it looked a lot better. Also, both times I've made this I didn't use the smocking design in the pattern - it's perfectly fine, but just didn't suit the look I was trying to achieve. My advice is, if you feel an existing design needs altering or embellishing, go ahead - your instincts are probably right!

I used the same pattern, and almost the same color material, to try as my first smocking piece.

I saw yours - I like the short sleeve version! I think kids' clothes in dark or bright colours makes more sense than pastels - my daughter is regularly covered in red clay, but our local shops sell mainly white babywear. I think I'll be making her one of these in every size, because it's so quick and looks so adorable.
