Gotta love the classic look of gingham. I often forget about gingham when picking out fabric, but it's a good, timeless look.
I adorned the smocking with a piece of tatting. Truthfully, I meant to add some piping here but I forgot so I handsewed some tatting on after the fact.
I also made this Easter/Spring time look. And the little girl is starting to inspect my work ;-)
I closed the back of the dress with hand sewn snaps and fake Mother of Pearl buttons. Well, the buttons are real, but the snaps are doing the work. It's so much easier to dress a wiggly baby that way.
