Wild Thing!




Here's a photo of my oldest granddaughter Jorden wearing a new smocked silk dress. It's a adaptation of one of the dresses in my 'Sew Cute Couture' book. The project was a little exercise in smocking an entire dress without any of the actual smocking stitches showing on the right side of the dress. All the stitches are either beaded or back stitched. I plan to use this dress as a class project in 2011. Jorden could not resist popping off a cartwheel before we could rescue the dress off of her.

  1. georgeous!!! I saw it on facebook, too. A beautiful little girl wearing a beautiful dress! Is this the same granddaughter who was doing cartwheels in your "French connection" dress? Of course, I want to know WHERE you will be teaching this dress!! Hope I can be in such a workshop. See you soon.
