OFB Smocked Daygown Part 3: The Dainties are IN!

I had sometime to work on my long neglected Old Fashioned Baby Smocked Daygown. I added the dainties — little rosebuds on the smocked part. These pink accents are added because I will eventually have some pink on the fancy hem that I will be doing for this daygown:

I have long ago given up trying to embroider identical boullions! It’s just impossible especially for handwork, and like I was told once that not even the flowers from the same flower bush look identical. So, now, I am at peace with the reality! :)

Shown are the dainty smocked front and my dainty little miniature “kinder” (child) teaset:

I do enjoy and treasure the dainty things in life — they sure have a marvelous softening effect!


p.s. If you have missed my earlier parts on the daygown, here are part 1 and part 2.
