I have always loved smocked outfits. They really are a piece of art. Â It took until a couple of months before Scarlett turned 1 for me to finally try my hand at it. Â I took one class to get me started and I haven’t looked back since. Â I had always put it in the too hard basket, although, of course, it wasn’t as hard as I had believed it to be!
I must admit that I haven’t made many outfits in the last couple of years. Â I seem to get part way through an outfit, get interrupted (like having to cook dinner, house work, go to bed etc., etc.), put the outfit away (because of course I craft at the dining table) only to find that the recipient is too big for the outfit when I finally get back to trying to finish it. Â So back it goes into my unfinished projects stash, potentially never seeing the light of day again.
Here is a sample of what I have made and actually finished! Â I have more, but will have to sift through our photo’s that were pre-digital to find them. Â Now if only I knew where I have stored them??
