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):
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).
