This is great!!! I am so glad you were honest -- My husband had about the same reaction
I'm going to nix the moons...or maybe the whole idea...I think I'll start backsmocking the inside and keep looking for just the right thing to put on there -- I don't have a butterfly plate, I thought I did but maybe I loaned it out or something -- and my daughter loves butterflies...

here's an online butterfly plate form Sew Beautiful that looks pretty cute.

I already printed it and am totally doing that one -- the sequins and beads are some of my favorite accents in smocking -- thank you very much for helping me find just the right thing -- next week is spring break, let's see if I can get it done while I'm out of town!

What about putting a snap on the front between the smocking and the main shirt?  Then you could make a bunch of fabric bows in many colors, and then change the bow depending on which pants they wear with it. Huh

Now I am looking at this plate and think it will work if I get the pink just right...I could even backstitch her monogram onto the crowns in black...I am probably going to do it over the next weekend - If I get it all smocked out, I'll post it!

To fail is to try in the first place.

If you are bored with the traditional kind of smocking, then take a look here Smiley

I would do fireworks on that black top of yours with austrian crystals and freehand herringbone stitching and lots of fiery colours Smiley

I finally finished this one - thanks for all of the advice and ideas...i am glad I didn't go with my first instinct and tried a new design i hadn't tried before, and alone, the top isn't very exciting, but I think with the capris, it definitely has a completed look...I think it will look nice on my daughter (she's 6) instead of looking too juvenile!
