Completed Outfits for Martha Pullen School

The best part about the snow last week, was that I had a chance to sew the buttons on all the outfits! These are the outfits that the students will be making in my "Smocking Construction" Classes at Martha Pullen School in February. In the class we will cover three basic construction techniques for smocking.

The first technique is constructing a classic white bubble or dress which has smocking attached to the yoke. Pattern #104 was used for the bubble and the dress.

Our second technique will be sewing a smocked insert into a garment.

Pattern #123 was used for the sundress and the sunsuit. Once again, the students will be able to choose whether they want to make a boy or girl outfit.

And our final technique will be a smocked bishop made from pattern #135, with a Madeira hem. All of the smocking designs, except for the bisop, are in the new "Beginner Smocking Book."

I know that you are probably wondering how we get that much sewing done in 4 days of classes! I never promise that you will complete your garments in class, but that you will learn the techniques, learn new sewing tips, and have a wonderful time!

Very fortunate students to have such wonderful project choices, and four days with a fabulous teacher! I am so glad you include options for those special lads in our lives!
