I created this layout for the competition I am hosting at Heaven-sent this month. the pink dress in the photo was smocked, sewn and embroidered by my Mum in 1960 as part of her assessment in dressmaking in her final year of school. The other dress I smocked and made in 1986, this was my first attempt at smocking and soon I was smosking lots of dresses for my daughter. Each dress took an average of 8 - 10 hours to smock. Taylor loved to wear these pretty dresses.
