Thank you for these kind comments. Annette, you could smock standing on your head, your sewing is so detailed and perfect, but I admit smocking is time consuming and an acquired taste (addiction)! I had not thought of using flannel, it would be worth a try.

Annette1 just said it all--your girls are amazing, and all work impressive.

I am SO impressed! Well, I guess I should say, FIRST of all, that I LOVE this nightdress. I would love one (or two) of these myself, one in a batiste and one in flannel for winter (might be too heavy?). Would you like me to send you my address? :o) I don't think I have the patience to smock -- ha! Your workmanship is just BEAUTIFUL. But ALSO, I'm so impressed with your daughter making that costume! You've got two very talented daughters. Looks AND brains, a dangerous combination!

That is so pretty! I love the chemise/nightdress, and the medieval costume is such fun!

The chemise is soooo pretty and romantic with the smocking and your lovely embroidery. Chapeau, Madame!

Lovely, and a very helpful review. Your daughter looks terrific and very proud of her costume. How wonderful that she could participate in the sewing. Another recruit, way to go!
