    Awwhhh! So adorable, both dress and sweet little lady. I always loved smocking, but could never get the hang of it. You did an awesome job.

    Love it, your model is a sweetie! I've done a little smoking, made a few smocked Christmas balls.

    Very nice job! Beautiful little one too. Haven't done any smocking since DD got out of kindergarten, which also coincided with my going to work full time.

    There is a machine that does the little pleats but then you embroidery everything else by hand.

    Love her dress...used to sew alot for my girls, now not so much for my grandaughter. Never learned to smock...I wonder why I didn't.
    Your grandaughter has the most beautiful eyes. That picture needs to be framed. She is a doll.

    So cute! My mom used to sew my dresses and did a lot of smocking when I was little. I don't do smocking, but I still love the look of it!!!!
