Treasures from the Closet, Part 3
This little white dress was smocked in 1996 using the Ashley/Corey pattern by ABC Kids. I don't know if you can see it in the photo, but I added little glass beads to the row with the bullion roses. The bonnet pattern came from English Smocking by Children's Corner, one of my favorite instruction books for basic smocking. I bought this book from a thrift store and have found it to be a great reference book.
My doll baby, Ellen, was 6 months old when this picture was taken in 1996.
I'm still in the planning stages of the dress I want to smock for Emily for Easter this year. More on that to come....
