Found this video at clipser by threadbangers and figured i'd take a stab at it!
Video: http://www.clipser.com/watch_video/1020435

I used a jersey knit fabric from joann's - i like the way it flows much more than cotton.

Gave me problems as i had to gather it manually- i don't think i had my bobbin tight enough.

WIP


WIP- just needed to add straps, wanted to make sure it fit her right


ALL DONE! Front (need to tighten straps some more)


Back


so whatcha think? it was pretty easy all things considered! Cheesy

I sew, paint unfinished wood, sketch, make jewelry, crochet a bit, loom knit, and sew. Pretty much if I can get my hands on it to learn, then I will know it. Maybe not perfectly, but enough for a hobby.

I love how the smocked top looks great with little girls.  I've used that same tutorial to make some for my now 3 y/o and they are so easy once you get the hang of it!

You chose a gorgeous fabric - and your model is adorable!  Great job!
