ohhh my, brings back memories, this one does. Back when Vogue actually included the smocking instructions ;) Did you use the dots? or how did you mark for the smocking?

Cute dress and you look wonderful in it. You're right, the smocking adds a nice touch. How nice that you can make a dress from one of your mother's old patterns.

This is a lovely vintage dress, made all the more meaningful since you're using your Mom's patterns! I love the smocking.
