Well that’s how I like to think of what I created for Tenneille for her birthday. Â I made her a gorgeous smocked nightie. Â I figured it was worthy of it’s own post. Â I spent hours making it. Â It’s the kind of nightie I would have loved as a little girl. I’m hoping Tenneille will feel the same. Â Time will tell. Â I suspect she will want to wear it as a dress, which I think it could pass as too. Â It is based on a pattern out of Australia Smocking and Embroidery issue number 93. Â These are the most divine books. Â I have made quite a few smocked outfits for my kids and certain other special people over the years.

I made a little keepsake bag too

Oh, those sweet little dimples.
