Lovely, smocked dress. I always loved smocked dresses for my daughters; this brought back many happy memories. Keep up the good work!

Precious little dress!! (And a darling little girl!) I used to make smocked dresses for my daughters when they were little. Your review and the photo were heartwarming! Thanks so much!

Absolutely lovely dress and little girl too. My grandmother use to make us little smocked dresses, I remember younger sisters smocks. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. :)

Awwww, too cute! How nice of you to make it for ds, too. Years ago, I found a similar old pattern, and, amazingly, the transfer still worked (good thing, too, because the dress had a full yoke treatment!). I was surprised at how easy the smocking was, with the transfer thus supplied.

What beautiful work! Fantastic job. So glad to see smocking being passed down to young folk, keep it up. My 2 little daughters often receive smocked dresses from their Nanna. I will always keep these treasures for their own daughters one day (hopefully).

Darling little dress!! You did a great job. If you enjoyed the smocking, most smocking shops will pleat your rows for you. No more dots!!! I used to love to smock for my kids.

Thanks so much for all your nice comments! I think that smocking is really making a comeback in the stores, and I'm so glad!
