I am suspending my sewing projects until after we return from our beach trip. I am really excited about my latest effort -- Children's Corner "Mary De" size 12 months in a blue and white polka dot. I smocked it using a cupcake design from AS&E (Australian Smocking and Embroidery magazine). If you look closely at the detail, the cupcakes have tiny glass bead "sprinkles."
It is a cute pattern -- wraps in the back with button closure (note I haven't finished yet -- no buttonholes or buttons). It can be worn as a sundress or a jumper (with the addition of a shirt). I am making matching bloomers with pink rickrack trim and a white puff sleeve shirt, also with pink rickrack trim. This could be the 1st birthday outfit!
