Baby's Smocked Layette - Again!


Very pleased with my Ruffled Brim Bonnet!
It was so fun to make.

And I am making the dress to go with it. 
Baby's Smocked Layette - Again.  In dimity.

 I told you I would!

I am not like some  people, who make a garment and are ready for something fresh and new.
I like to make it over, and over and over. This way, and that way.   I always change something.  But, it's a gentle change, usually.  May be the fabric.  May be the different entredeux for the neck, like  the one pictured above.  May be the hem (it will be on this dress, but just slightly).  Could be that I made a Bonnet to match  (I did!).

And it might be that I have attached the sleeves using entredeux, as I have here.

Well, it has been lovely stitching this pretty little dress!

The Dimity is a dream!

I understand your creative process. When I find something I like, I tend to explore all the subtle variations too. I also think that is the key to developing your range of skills. And your skills create such delicate beauty.
