Smocking Dresses

While i was trying to re-arrange some space in the cupboard for my knitting stuff, i found some of these treasures.....

SMOCKING DRESSES!!!

These smocking dresses were made for my dd when she was abt 4 -6 yrs old then and now she is already in her teen! I remembered i have made abt 20 + pieces for her and most of them were given away when she was abt 8 - 9 yrs old and felt smocking dresses are only for smaller girls! These 3 pieces were the 1st batch which i did for her and DD told me that she will keep these for her dd next time! lol.. I learn smocking from some magazines and still keeping these magazines in very good order.

You know, Lauri have plenty of smocking dresses given by FIL. He bought them from Vietnam in much cheaper price than if you bought it in here. So lucky me don't have to buy dress for Lauri.
