Making a dress for Peyton
I learned how to smock when my two daughters were little girls. Actually Natalie was in the 6th grade and she was probably too old to wear a smocked frock, but she was always more than happy to please her Mama! Sarah was only in the 4th grade, but she hated wearing dresses! So I had to wait patiently until I had granddaughters. Rianne, who is now 16, and Mackenzie who is now 14, had several of my smocked creations. Pinafores, bonnets, booties, I even made the boys smocked nighties. But as they all grew older there was no use for my obsession! Then along comes Peyton! I had actually forgotten about smocking until my daughter Sarah asked if I could make Peyton a sundress, duh! So I got out the old pleater and went to work!
