Project

Stella Smocked Doll Dress, American Girl

What are you most proud of? In designing the pattern, getting the dress to fit the American Girl Doll perfectly and having the bottom edge of the smocking in front perfectly match the bottom of the back bodice. I really like things to fit well and that took a lot of work. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be ready to have fun! Also, take a look at some basic smocking stitches on youtube videos to see how easy it is to do. http://www.infinitefreedom.com/free-smocking-lessons/index.html. Beyond that you will need a plan to pleat your fabric (with a pleater, iron-on transfer dots or a smocking template that uses chalk).
