They both turned out so elegant! I was too busy looking at the gorgeous smocking on yours to even notice the seams. Love the colors and the back necklines! You did a wonderful job!

Awesome work!
I think the technique is called Canadian basket smocking, but I could be wrong. At any rate, you did it flawlessly.  Smiley

Thank you so much for pointing us towards the tutorial your friend made!!! I've been wanting to learn how to do that for a long time but never knew what it was called to look it up. I'm so happy I saw your post!
Your dresses turned out beautifully!!!! I love the colors.

Wow! That smocking is incredible. I'm definitely going to have to try a dress with that technique, especially since I want to do more hand-sewing. The dresses are both lovely!

Oh... my gosh. That is literally breathtaking. Thank you so much for sharing this with us - I won't be able to rest until I've learned that lattice technique! Wow. Really, really amazing.

wow! These are truly the best kinds of comments, I'm so happy to have been able to inspire and give directions to the tutorial!


Brittanica- I really have no idea what it's called, but I googled both lattice and canadian basket smocking and got pictures of this technique so I guess it could be called both ^^ Canadian basket sounds better and more accurate though...

I'm really really stunned by all your sweet comments, thank you so much guys!
