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!

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.

What a precious little dress! Your baby sister looks like she's having a lot of fun wearing it too.

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).

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.

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. :)

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!

What a cute dress. That baby is lucky to have both sister and mom sewing her adorable clothes.
