Pink Ruffled Brim Smocked Bonnet

If you haven't been following the Bonnet posts, you can read about this model here.
Todays little Baby Bonnet is Smocked.

I call it my Ruffle Brim Smocked Bonnet.

A side view.

You can see that the bonnet is gathered up at the back and ties with a ribbon.  Classic Smocked Bonnet style.  This makes it somewhat adjustable, which is nice.

The lace edging was attached to the Bonnet Ruffled Brim using the machine Pin stitch.  Stitched on the Pfaff Sewing machine.

This ribbon tie was attached to the Bonnet by simply folding the ribbon under twice and embroidering a little flower on top of it.

I think it's more comfortable for Baby to tie the ribbon off to one side of the Bonnet.

Italian Organdy fabric was used to make it.  The fabric choice was perfect as the body of the Organdy really makes the ruffle pretty.  Italian Organdy is not as stiff of Swiss Organdy.  I love it.

The bonnet pattern is included with my OFB pattern "Baby's Smocked Layette"

And this is my Pink Saturday post along with How Sweet The Sound.

Okay... this one is my favorite (I think it's the smocking!). Can't wait for a grandbaby for which to make lots of bonnets!
