So today while I was supposed to be going through some verb tense and verb voice exercises for class I was smocking. Or rather I was sewing something I already smocked. And yeah, I know, doing the classwork would be the mature thing to do but instead I was sort of throwing a quiet fit and doing what I wanted to do instead.
Some shirting cotton from a while back. Striped, so I only needed to mark out the horizontals and viola... smocking.
Crumple-y rumple-y cotton stitched into a neat little honeycomb panel.
Sweet and simple. A perfect little nightgown. No extra embroidery because as soon as I was done snapping a few pictures she hurried off to her room and wouldn't bring it back. She's upstairs sound asleep all curled up in it now.
Pattern is my own that I've been toying with. I'm still not quite happy with the neckline so there's more toying to do.
I adore this little sailboat button. Sail away. Sweet dreams.
