Sweet Cinnamon

Sounds like a dessert right? Well, this is a delicious dress if I do say so myself and I do!
The pics just do on do this this dress justice, it's definitely one you have to see in person to get the full impact. I've had a wonderful time sewing on my vacation. Maybe I can get in a little more before the end of the day.

I used AS&E issue 65 "Sweet Cinnamon" smock plate. I've stitched than one before and I love it! For the dress pattern, I again used Gail Doane's book "Sew Cute Couture". The dress doesn't show up so well on a white background. But I'm hoping the recipient will be happy with it.

Decided at the last minute to add lace to the neckline.

So after adding lace, I decided that a belt in the back was not a good choice, so over to Hancocks I went to purchase some organza for ties.

This was some organza lace from my stash. I'm happy I had a lace stash to go to!  You can see my toes in the pic :). This dress and the previous one are going to a new friend's granddaughter. They are coming tomorrow to pick them up from work. I meet the best people working at a fabric store.
Happy smocking everyone!

It's absolutely yummy! I'm sure the little girl will love it.

This looks wonderful. I think the colour matches the smocking design just perfectly.

What a wonderful job you have done, and i am sure that the pictures do not do it justice.
