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

How pretty - I never did learn how to smock but have always loved it. I have a "great" granddaughter coming in February - will be so much fun to dress her up!!!

I adore smocking. I don't know how to do it. My sil used to make beautiful clothes before she died
