Heirloom Smocking & Embroidery

I thought I would put a few pictures of my previous handmade dresses that I made for my gorgeous daughter when she was younger - she is now 16 years old so not much smocking needed now.

The dress is from a pattern by Australian Smocking & Embroidery called 'The Perfumed Garden'.

Fourteen flower pots each with their own embroidered flowers.

The embroidery theme carried on through the sleeve cuffs

Handmade matching fabric piping was also used on the collar, cuffs and front of the dress

Rachael wore this for her school photograph when she was 7 years old.
