Summer Tops

I bought this beautiful vintage seersucker fabric some time back from a charity shop. There was at least two metres of each colour, the light colour is actually white not pink as it looks in the top photo.
I knew at some point I would find a purpose for it. 

So when I came across this lovely pattern on www.purlbee.com I knew the fabric would be perfect. Of course I would have to run that past a couple of little girls first :)

The pattern is for a dress or top depending on the age of the child, so I made tops for the twins. I haven't seen them wearing them yet but hope to get a photo soon.

I used French seams all around, made the bias binding with one of those little gadgets and hand smocked the top.

The pattern was so simple and clear to understand and the fabric was great to work with.

Simply darling! The smocking may be easy for you, but not so sure for me :)

I remember my mother bought little dresses with smocking on for our girls and I thought they were so beautiful! I can't believe that you made these two dresses. They look like dresses you would buy in a boutique. So cute!
