Summer Smocking

I finished this bishop for Abby last week. The fabric is a very soft fabric finders cotton lawn that I got last year on sale and just got around to it. I love making these especially for Abby because it is likely that soon she will be too grown up to wear these. I'm sad that it will likely happen when she starts kindergarten soon.

I used a sage green gingham to do the neck and arm bands on this and the contrast is very fun. The whole design is baby waves that I eye balled from a magazine picture...babywave HELL! Haha, it is so many rows...and soooo many pleats on a size 6 bishop!

I think she looks lovely and the fabric is so dainty that she needs a slip! Luckily one of her portrait dresses came with one.
