What are you most proud of? I'm proud of the fact that my Lord & Savior gave me the creativity and ability to smock and sew to make a beautiful heirloom dress for my granddaughter. I don't follow a pattern to do the smocking or to make the dress. After many years of smocking & dressmaking, I've learned to create my own designs & dress patterns.

Wow! It's beautiful, but looks oh so difficult.

Thank you! After many years of smocking & sewing, it wasn't too hard, but I must admit the Madiera applique did pose a challenge! The first time I did the scalloped hem, I did it upside down!! But it was worth all the work to see my little tootsie in it!!
