Smocked Dress for Older Girl

Made a smocked dress for little Dania.

The dress is smocked around the waist with Van Dyke stitches ~ suitable for older girls.  I then added a fabric flower brooch in shades of pink to match with the floral prints.

A beautiful dress for a sweet little muslimah! :-)

Cherry Pie for My Daughter Aisyah

I made this special dress for my daughter ~ A very beautiful pattern designed by Martha Broyles of the USA from Australian Smocking & Embroidery magazine Issue #96.  I've been wanting to do some picture smocking and when my daughter saw those cherries, she quickly said yes! :-)

This design requires a specific number of pleats and since I was using solid kona fabric in Carnation (brighter pink), I did a little adjustments on the number of pleats, DMC thread colour keys and skipped the smocking on the sleeve part.

I enjoy making the dress, it's a handmade dress by mama for her fondest childhood memories.  :-). 

I start from the last row.

Proceed with the upper rows.

Those are deliciously lovely cherries, she says!  :-)
