speaking of smocking: lisette continental blouse

Since¬†I showed you my smocked Badminton Dress for Sew Beautiful magazine yesterday, here’s a little something I smocked for myself! It’s the Continental Blouse pattern from our Lisette line of patterns with Simplicity. I changed the pattern a little bit and made it into a smocked tunic.

    Totally love this! I think you have caught the smocking bug Leisl! I want to smock this blouse using the Italian smocking method. It can lend itself really well to any smocking design.

  2. Very pretty!

    This is so nice. Would you consider it for a class on creativebug? I would love to see how its done.

    Does this pattern come in a plus sized? Where can I buy it. The link no longer works

    1. Lori, sorry to say that style has long been out of print and is no longer available.
