Another Day, Another Dress

(Don't forget to enter my first giveaway ... scroll down a couple of posts to enter!)

One of my good friends had a baby girl recently, so I decided to smock her a dress.

I prepped everything before my trip, hoping that the nice TSA folks would let me work on this on the plane. (I hate to not be productive for so many hours!!)


Here it is all laid out ...
This was actually the first time I've pleated a dress without breaking a needle. Yahoo!


Isn't this pretty fabric?
I love how feminine it is, even though it's blue!


These are the colors I'm going to use to smock it with.
I can't wait to see how it turns out!!
Let's hope that Mackenzie likes it!

WAHOOOOO!!!!! I have to say I LOVE blue for little girls (when it's feminine of course), and Mackenzie has these gorgeous bright blue eyes, so I love dressing her in blue! (I'm hoping they will stay that way, but Jackson and Morgan's eyes both turned hazel/green around their first bday). Anyway, can't wait to see the finished project!!

Sara, The fabric is so cute, I didn't think anyone smocked anymore. I'm amazed at the photos showing the pleating. Can't wait to see the finished dress. I'm sure your friend will be thrilled.
