Teaching at The Smock Shoppe - Cute Clothes

While teaching at The Smock Shoppe a student brought in some pretty garments she had made.
These are the garments featured in the Sewing Booklet from the last post.

She made a Bonnet to match the Smocked Dress.

The fabric is Dotted Swiss and it is really yummy!!

This little Daygown is Sweet and Simple Daygown Collection.

I love that she embroidered between the Buttonholes. 

Embroidered Raglan Daygowns is from a Daygown Sew Along I did on my blog.  It's still up on my blog so you can make one too!  Just follow the lesson plans.

She used the same Embroidered Raglan Daygown pattern and a design from my Embroidery Book on this daygown.  She added the hemstitching below the embroidery - teaching herself to hemstitch.  I really like this Daygown with the Hemstitching.

That was one reason she was taking this class.  To get some pointers on Hemstitching.

She added an embroidery design at the hem and really did a good job with proportion and placement too. 

Smocked Baby Clothes Daygown is very pretty in this soft lavender fabric.

Thank you so much for bringing your garments!

We all enjoyed seeing them.  And we were inspired!!!

Wow! What artistry! It must be a thrill to see someone interpret what you've created with such skill and beauty. I love the pink daygown with the hemstitching detail.
And I don't think I've said this before, but I love the old-fashioned style garments so much better than many of the contemporary trends. I like the tiny and delicate details to enhance a baby's natural beauty, not overwhelm him or her. I don't like a baby to be used as a canvas for how cute his or her clothes are. And I especially don't like a baby to be made a fashion statement for adult styles. I think I am very particular, but after all, we're talking about *babies*, such a unique and special stage -- I don't like to hurry them into their next developmental stage!

What precious inspiration! I am getting ready to do yet ANOTHER Emma's Smocked Dress for a gift, Sweet and Simple bubble for our upcoming little man as well as a christening gown using the Baby Gowns pattern as a base. Yes, I am a stalker fan. :)
