    This turned out absolutely beautiful. Love the aqua thread detail on the smocking and your model is so sweet.

    This is soooo cute!

    I commented on your smocking tutorial–loved it! I'd love to make the bodice all in one piece to take advantage of the work of smocking by seeing the gathers coming out of the bottom!

    OH MY GOSH! That is just ADORABLE and I LOVE seeing your adorable little model too. She's just too friggin cute. Thank you for the great tute once again.

    Very cute. This may just convince me to try smocking. Though, I am so NOT a Beatles fan, so I may not call it the Eleanor Rigby top. Maybe I will just called it the smocked top. Is that okay 🙂

    love the top. had to comment about the sweet introverted little beauty modeling it! I have a shy one, tho we have been extremely careful not to label her &#39;shy&#39;. When she was tiny, making eye contact with a stranger was enough to start the wails. <br />She just turned 10 and struggles with some social anxiety but is super gregarious and sweet. I&#39;ve seen her develop deeper empathy

    So do you just smock the bodice until it&#39;s at the right width to match up with the rest of the dress? What&#39;s your gauge for smocking? Thanks so much for these tutorials! I found your site about 1-2 weeks ago, and love every. single. thing. 🙂

    Jules, When you do the first step for smocking which gathers up you determine the size then, but yes I gather until it is the size I desired it to be. For the gauge on this one I followed the checkered print since it was the easiest way. I believe the squares are all 1 inch across and down and I met at the corner and half way point (or .5 inch grid) I hope that helps!

    Aha! I don&#39;t know why it didn&#39;t click with me that the first step would help determine it! Thanks so much!

    Why have I never stumbled upon your blog before? I can&#39;t believe all the sewing tutorials you have. Each one is cuter than the next.

    Our daughter was shy like your Abbey. I had to learn how to walk with her hiding under my skirt! She is 35 now and a mother and has a career working at a university in the Student Retention Department. She still has a little stage fright before she addresses a large group but she&#39;s confident and successful.. As a family we were very involved in church and I think that really helped her
