Wow, what a pleasant surprise. I clicked on what I though was just a green blouse and all of a sudden all of this gorgeous embroidery appeared like magic. Absolutely beautiful. I love smocking but have not attempted it since my DD was a baby almost 35 years ago. After seeing your top, I'll have to try it again.

Oh boy, this is a beaut--The first review I have seen of this magnificent old pattern! Thanks for the lovely result of all your skills. 24-year-old kid or not, you have created a masterwork.

Great work - I really like the tone-on-tone colours, the smocking and embroidery is beautiful! katlew03 is right - at a glance it looks simple, and then when looking closer, it is clearly a work of art :)
