If you have watched any news at all over the last few weeks you might have noticed that a certain famous baby has been spotted wearing lovely smocked outfits. Although smocking is a very old technique' it became very popular some 30 years ago when the baby's daddy appeared in public in smocked outfits. Those pictures way back then, and the fact that I had 3 little boys had a lot to do with my learning to smock.
Because "classic" never goes out of style, these designs have been in my collection for quite some time along with a sailboat smocking design. The bubble is pattern #115 and the dress is pattern #131. Click here for the free down loadable smocking design.
