Here are a few things I just finished. Just incase I haven't mentioned this lately...I'm definitely NOT a professional photographer:)
Here's my second smocked t-shirt. I made these pants and bloomers for the summer several months ago. I'll try to get EmK to model it later, but since I never know how that's going to go, here's a quick shot.
I have a few more things to smock.....it's just a matter of finding the time:)
I love to smock and I've made several dresses for EmK. I think my love for smocking came from watching my sister make things for her kids when they were little.
I've been wanting to take a class at The Smocking Bird to learn how to put a smocked insert into a t-shirt and today was the day:) I love that I got to bring home a completed project. In all my other smocking classes I never finish in class and have to finish at home....so it was nice to come home and have something to admire as I passed it on the kitchen table:)
I'm planning to do a few more and put them with ruffle pants or bloomers.
Check out this little article about my sewing business. It's amazing how thoughtful and giving a complete stranger can be. I bought the ruffle dress pattern from Whimsy Couture a few weeks ago and emailed Denise when I had a question. She was so helpful that I sent her a picture of the finished dress...which led to many email conversations....and to make a long story short, she wrote an article about my sewing business on her blog. How FUN!!!!
I put these two orders in the mail this afternoon. Thanks for the orders! Btw, if you've passed on my blog at any point....THANKS!!!!
