Very cute! I love purple. I just discovered your blog today. Very nice.
ooh!! love it!!! did you do the smocking too? you should wear it out! it looks great on you!
I thought about doing 'proper' smocking (for about 10 seconds) and then cheated a bit by using shirring elastic. And the fabric's gingham which helps keep on line and pattern.But it's all done by hand, took about 2 days :)
That's lovely :) The ribbon edging is gorgeous too. Hoorah for Manchester Art Gallery too (we went last Weds and had a fab time looking round)
I think you look super cute in your smock. Very hip. Love the braid too.Thanks for your comment on my blog, I checked out Andi's work and it looks right up my alley. I'm going to start with Breakfast After Noon!
Wow. I am embarrassed to say I've never encountered "real smocking" - now you have me running off to Google :) It looks amazing.
