Easter Sewing (6)

Moving on to the second youngest little granddaughters dress, I am still using the Camille Roskelly and her mom's designed fabrics called "Bliss".
Here is the main floral fabric pattern of the dress.
This dress is smocked on the entire bodice and is a typical square yolked dress. Using a white pique for the collar and sleeve cuffs gives the dress a little flare.
The baby cord piping around the collar and cuffs is a sage green/white checked fabric
and I also put a little ruffle of the checked fabric around the bottom of the dress.
There is a built in slip with an eyelet edge on the very bottom.
The smocking is done in aqua and red with a few rows of blank pleating that is back smocked (smocked in straight rows on the wrong side of the fabric) so as not to lose the shape of the pleats on the front.
Notice also the little red flowers hand stitched on the collar.
The double sided satin bow is the pretty aqua color and ties in the back.
Here is the finished front.
Happy Easter "E." Send me a picture!!!! Go here to see the girl wearing the dresses.
