It was a push, but I got this done for church on Sunday.
I started this dress a year ago, and, at some point got tired of the embroidery (or distracted by Christmas dresses). It sat in my sewing basket until a few weeks ago. I decided I'd better get to finishing it before it was outgrown.
I wasn't happy with the vertical buttonhole, so I changed the rest. I was going to rip out the first one and re-sew it to match, but Alice said it looked cool and I should leave it, so I did.
Now I'm madly constructing a baptismal gown for a friend. I'm all out of smocking, though. Time to pleat something new!
