Liesl mentioned this gorgeous smocked version of the Garden Party Dress the other day in her spring pattern round-up part 2, but it’s just so perfect I think it deserves its own feature, don’t you?
Let’s all collectively oooooo and aaaahhh at how pretty it is….
Our newest spring dresses can go in many different directions style-wise, and this Garden Party takes on a decidedly vintage feel in peach fabric with scallop hand smocking. It was sewn by Darcy Struble, darjeena on Flickr. Darcy references this tutorial for the pleating and Liesl’s Smocked Necklace workshop on Creativebug as well.
