Pink or White?

Do I want to smock in White with a Pink Bullion?  Do I want to smock in all Pink?  Which Smocking Design should I use?
The hardest part of any project for me is deciding!

Even something as simple as the floss.  I love white on white, especially with just a little pink Bullion accent.   But this pattern has only a little bit of smocking.  So, if I smock it in pink it will still be only a little bit of color.  Why agonize over this small detail anyway?  Both will be lovely! 

I am loving making Baby's Smocked Layette pattern.  This one for my other "Grand" Neice.
I cut out and pleated this dress yesterday. 
 Then after finally deciding on Pink Floss (Anchor #48) , I smocked it.
It didn't take much time at all. It's for my "Grand" neice, who is three weeks old.  

Very pretty. Lucky for me the fabric I am using was already decided.  It is matching a Nightgown I made for Baby's  sister.  It's called Skip Dent.

 Now on to the construction.
