OFB Smocked Layette Part 2: Completed!

Well,  my Old Fashioned Baby smocked layette project didn’t turn out to be a knocked down and dragged out saga like my smocked baby daygown. You see, I couldn’t dilly dally because this particular outfit was supposed to be worn for Easter this year (and it WAS completed in time for Easter!):

It was such a fun project. I think I am going to make another one with a floral fabric for a less formal look. But for now, here is the lacy fancy hem:

The coordinating slip. I embroidered a teeny rosebud right below the neckline just for fun:

OFB Smocked Layette Part 1: Getting Started

This week, I have been working on a smocked layette. The pattern is by Jeannie Baumeister of Old Fashioned Baby:

The smocking is very simple by very sweet, with super sweet embroidery on the smocked sleeves:

This is what I have done so far:

These are the French Val laces I will be using to attach to the hem – I have a thing for lacy hem:

Some daisies to cheer your day

Happy Wednesday, Everyone! How about some cheery bullion daisies to brighten up your day?

These daisies are embroidered on the back of a smocked Children’s Corner Bessie using Milliner #9, with 30 wraps to each of the petals. Not the most enjoyable thing to do, but certainly worth the effort! Notice, the color scheme of the daisies echo the fabric print.

The front is already smocked, and I just need to finish up adding the remaining daisies! More pictures to come. Stay tuned!
