OFB Smocked Daygown Part 7: Hang-ability!

Another Happy Monday to you all! I finished piecing my first of two quilts for “The Quilter” over the weekend. As a treat, I allowed myself to do some heirloom sewing. Now, my Old Fashioned Baby Smocked Daygown has “hang-ability” (ability to be hung!) because I french-seamed the shoulder seams!! You can also see from the picture how the fancy hem looks on the dress:

I also learned to attach the front placket. An edge-stitch foot really came in handy for that!! A piece of cake for some, but a MILESTONE for me. I actually also learned to do release pleats, but the picture doesn’t quite show it (next time, I promise!):

My remaining checklist for the daygown (I think, unless my wonderful teacher says otherwise):

1. Slip

2. Collars

3. Buttonholes

4. Sleeves

5. Buttons

I hope to be able to show you prettier pictures once the collars and sleeves are attached.

Carrie graciously awarded me with this (Thanks bunches, Carrie!):

(She and I hit it off right away because we are both daughters of the King, and we are both dish-aholics! I always enjoy her posts on tablesettings and dishes among her other excellent posts).

  1. I always love seeing how you keep the art of smocking alive with such beautiful children’s outfits. I hope your readers will be so inspired by your work that they will seek a way to learn to smock. It is not hard. I have learned through taking a local class.
    Thank you for sharing this on your blog..lovely!!
