Smocked dress for Lola
This is the first smocking I had done for about ten years and I have to say it took some time to get my rhythm again...much unpicking, but the results were worth it.
It was a Christmas dress for a special granddaughter and I'm only just blogging about it now, I really don't know where the year has gone.
We went down to our local botanical gardens for a photo shoot and I think I took about ninety pics, well you can't have two many of grandchildren can you.
Lola was a little trooper and she didn't fall in the pond or sit in duck 'you know what' but I think the most smiles we got was when she sat in my car pretending to drive.
I chose this beautiful fabric because I wanted a white background with sprigs of flowers and this Elea Lutz fabric from the 'Little Dolly' range was perfect.
Isn't Lola so cute with her Shirley Temple curls and we don't really have curls in the family so this is so amazing.
