What She Wore To The Party

Of course Emma also needed a special dress for the birthday party.  Lucky for her I had started a new bishop dress before she moved here!  :)

I seem to be having a love affair with turquoise gingham these days.  Emma has two dresses out of the same fabric right now.  A little weird, but it is a good color on her.

The smocking design is "Babies Ahoy" by Kathy Crisp Designs.  I love how the bright pink flamingos show up on the fabric.  A great design when you want a little smocking.

Bright pink rickrack brought the pink color down to the sleeves.  * A little sewing tip:  I picked out the rickrack first then matched the floss color for the flamingos.  Think of it this way, there are only a few shades of pink rickrack on the market while there are many shades of pink floss.

I am going to make this bishop!! Love that turquoise check.

Can you do a tutorial on successful pleating? I am afraid I am going to lose my religion on this one. I can do straight pleating, but the bishops are killing me. I have wasted sooooo much fabric with pleating failures.

Beautiful! I love gingham bishops, and I love flamingoes. This little dress is just perfect!
