I love paging through my old family photos and looking back at my childhood, outfits and all. My mom, who has been my sewing inspiration since I was twelve, hand-smocked so many beautiful little dresses for me. I have always wanted to learn how to do it; it’s so adorable, feminine and has such a timeless look. I have found some really lovely hand smocked couture for women, on Pinterest of course. Here are some tempting items that make me want a little hand smocking in my wardrobe.
I was overjoyed when our new lovely teacher, Nicole Morgenthau gave us a class proposal for this adorable little hand smocked pinafore dress.
Even if you don’t have a little one in your life, Nicole will teach you the techniques involved in smocking so you can make anything you want. Love it!
