    New granddaughter's smocked dress

    My son married a lady with a little girl and boy. for the wedding, I smocked my first dress. I had learn how to smock when I was expecting him about 32 years ago. He got one outfit before my husband said he could not wear them anymore.

    Little Sara really liked her dress, so did Momma.

    That is beautiful! Learning to smock is on my bucket list. However, I only had boys so I never got around to learning. Now I'm expecting our first grandchild. If it's a girl, learning to smock will move up the list!

    Beautifully done!
    And beautiful little one as well.

    When DD was little I made several smocked garments for her. They were fun to do.

    What a wonderful job you did. Both the young lady and her dress are beautiful. 38 years ago I married my husband who had a son from his first marriage. My Mom and Dad accepted Shane right away and always treated him like the wonderful guy he is, not as a step but as one of the Grands. Your show of love is priceless.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    The dress is just beautiful - you did a wonderful job with the smocking. Your granddaughter looks so sweet in it.

    The dress and the model/wearer/owner are adorable. You did a stunning job. My son's christening outfits both had smocking. The men had fits even though there were no flowers. Told the guys the smocking looked like lattice fencing. That shut them up!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
