Wow that is stunning so well done.
I can just see the little dear in this. It is so precious, reminds me of little girls so many yrs ago/Lillian
This little sundress you've made looks lovely& the added cheater smocking adds a delicate touch too. Thanks for sharing your work. :~D
very close to the 'proper' stuff and so much faster. Great work.
It looks fabulous, well done. Love Chris
Very well done love it L Sherene x
Great looking and well planned out from your nifty faux smocking to the lovely added lace.
How sweet. I bet the little girl won't care if the gathers are perfect.
Bright and breezy and cute!
ah a good choice it is very feminine, ~hugs~
Faux smocking....I love it.
Nice...did you have to gather the fabric first or ??? I have several of the Skeldale House smocked designs...but have never used any...I need to know more about how to use them...thanks...lovely!
Yes, I gathered the fabric first, then basted it to the hooped tearaway stabilizer. Next time, I will put water soluble over the top of the gathers to keep the foot from pusing the gathers to the side.
Thanks for the details, Sharon...I need to look into this, too!
That's a really pretty dress, Jo
Very pretty dress ~ great job!
This is really pretty. I must investigate further!
That is such a pretty design. ..nice colours and clever smocking idea :) so you embroidered first and then gathered right?
Did you use the elastic thread in the bobbin?
Gathered first, then embroidered over the gathers. I didn't put water-soluble over the top of the gathers, so the foot pushed the gathers aside at the start. Next time, I'll float something over the top to keep it even.
no elastic thread in the bobbin... but what a great idea to try!
Well i think it is darling!!!!!Love it Hugs
