I smocked this one for a friend's granddaughter.
You are looking at the front and back views



She brought me this gorgeous light sage corduroy and wanted wreaths smocked for her size 2 granddaughter...and this is what I came up with - she was delighted!


I adapted the smocking plate a little (As usual!) add beads and a bow -- the original smocking plate was Ellen McCarn's Holiday Greetings. This is truly one of my favorites!

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

Great Job.  How hard was it to pleat corduroy?  I can't imagine it going through the pleater very well...

I assume you know how to assemble a bishop with this answer:  you can't french that seam from the armpits to the neck, you just have to do a thin seam and serge, zig zag, or use a stitch on the machine that does it all at once (the latter is my choice) -- it is a baby cord so it went through quite well -- you just HAVE to keep the seam absolutely parallel to the pleater -- if it is crooked, it breaks needles.

I must say that putting my work on this website has been great for my ego!

Thanks, you are so kind!

I was secretly envious that this wasn't for my own little girl...I may have to whip up a second one!

Thanks for letting me know, as I would have never attempted corduroy, through the pleater, but I think I might have to try sometime as it would make nice winter dresses.
