I made one of Sue's smockfrocks today and I am enthralled! So easy to pleat and smock. The hardest part--trying to decide if the back shoulder parts go over the front or if it is front over back. This isn't hemmed yet, but look how pretty Sue's smocking looks on seersucker!

Thank you. When she outgrows these sizes, I'm going to have to learn how to adapt bigger patterns for this faux smocking!

Do you mind sharing where you found this design? I saw the finished dress on your granddaughter on another post... both your granddaughter and the dress are precious!

Thank you. The design is on Cutie's Sue's Facebook Group, called Engineered in Stitches. It's called the smockfrock, and it is in the files on the Facebook page.

It looks fab. The seersucker makes it even more special. Well done!

Thank you. Today, I convinced Riley to try it on, just so I could take a photo. At first I thought it was too short, but the longer I look at it, the more I like the length. Riley just turned three, and she is such a tall girl. This is the large size smockfrock.

Thank you. I can't figure out how to add a photo to a comment, so I will post a photo in a new thread.

I love your little dress! Looks so feminine. Is this all done by hand!
So lovely, can't wait to see your next dress!

No, not by hand; this is an In The Hoop design with a little bit of sewing (like the hem).

The only sewing machine usage is the side seams and the hem. So much fun to sew.

Amazing! It looks hand smocked.

Thanks for the reminder. I need to make 2 dresses. Her video explains the project very well. Glad you enjoyed making it.

The videos really did help,and they aren't too long. I used to dislike watching videos, but they really do help.

Thank you. I decided back to front. Maybe next dress will be front to back.

Thank you. It really is a quick and easy project. I would have been faster but I kept stopping and taking pictures of it and sending to my daughters!
