smocked and embroidered toddler dress

I started making this heirloom dress when Samantha was 1 year old.  I did all the smocking and embroidery by hand but didn’t get around to sewing  it together until she was 2.  The problem was that she had grown, but I’d already cut the fabric and didn’t know what to do about the lenth of the dress because the middle front section needed to be longer.  After looking at all my laces, I came up with the solution of sewing the beading on,  and then another piece of fabric beneath that.  The result is so pretty that I’m glad I’d made the mistake.  I think adds a little more intrest to the hem. The pattern is sizes12-24 months.  

back has smocking and embroidery as well as the front.

    Brilliant! Do you resell some of the dresses you made for your girls as well?
