Do y'all remember this smocked panel, not quite finished?
Do you remember that I hated the colors, that the Hunny had chosen the colors, that you all liked the colors? Here's another shot of the panel, fully smocked:
I still don't like the colors, but I think it will be very cute on a little girl, in a Gymboree kind of way. But smocked.
Here's the sister dress, not quite complete:
The row between the pink lines will have a sherbet orange feather stitch (like the turquoise stitch on the green panel). See it?
These two came out much better than I expected them to, quite honestly. Karen Deborah fell in love with these fabrics, and when I saw them, I thought them darling. But they're a BLEND! Karen! No, no, no! Yes, I'm publicly scolding you. Sorry. No blends! But they did work up really cute. Heh.
There are two projects in the hopper next. One is a potential Easter duo (waiting on fabric from a mommy), the other a spring/summer dress for a favorite blogger's grand daughter. I like the kid's mom, too. :) And I'll try to remember to post pictures of these dresses when they're complete.
Until I write again ...
