smocked bishop

Last summer I smocked
my first bishop dress.

It was much easier than I thought.
I took a class
and we used this pattern :
the bishop dress by Ellen McCarn
and Aurora smocking plate.

I chose to make mine with angel sleeves,
less hot and more space for growing!
and a little lace to finish them.

The smocking went relatively fast,
and it was a great project for hot summer days.

Here a close up of the smocking,

as close as I have been to picture smocking!

It is on my to-do list,
just not on the top!

The only sad part:
I am finally capable of making them,
but Miss C. does not want to wear them!

She looks good in them!
Perfect for dancing!

Happy sewing!


  1. A very pretty bishop on a very sweet little girl! If she doesn't care to wear smocked bishops as a dress, they can make sweet nightgowns, too!

  2. Awesome! I will be featuring this tomorrow. Thanks for linking!
