An evening on my own last night and my sewing machine still up at house, I thought I would try my hand at machine smocking, something I have never attempted before. With no pattern and no real idea of what I was doing, I very much 'winged' it, making it up as I went along... Needless to say I was a lot later to bed than is usual!
Sasha, my 1974 Trendon girl got first try at modelling the dress.
I love this delicate flower print and think the colours suit her well.
Although I have no more of the fabric left, well certainly not enough to make another dress!
