I've a hard time making decision what to make. Then the harder time to finished and blog it on time.
By a little free time, I want to create a hand smock dress. The dress was done on the night before our family trip. So, I have to took all photo during the trip and now I am editing them and blogging by my iPhone.
This dress is made from The Sally dress pattern by Very Shannon. It's cute and comfy. I made it my style by adding the smock on the front bodice of the dress and attach the cute owl appliques on both pockets.
This is a mini-how to for this smocking. Start by marking sign on the dots. Then put the needle from wrong side of fabric at no.1. Pull the thead on right side of fabric and put the needle down on no.2. Then up on no.3 and down on no.4 and so on and so on. When down on no.8, pull all the thread together and secure the thread at the wrong side of fabric. Move to the next group four dots along your designed area.
The owl applique looks cute, right? I'd love to take the compliment but I didn't creat them myself. I found them as an iron on applique at nearby craft store. ;)
Sorry for too much of photo on this post. I've just love how the dress turned out and can't resist to post them. It was approved by the girl too. And I hope you would like it as well.
Thank you for stopping by. I really love to hear your comment.
