I found this dress by Carter's on sale at Target. It had the pleating but no smocking. Well I couldn't let it stay plain so I added the smocking. I hadn't smocked in years but I remembered how and made the pattern up out of my head as I went along.
Here is a close up of the smocking.
I have another little dress to do. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
How much fun am I going to have with a granddaughter! lol
