My Favorite Yellow Smocked Dresses


I found this gorgeous Rose and Hubble yellow lawn print at Craftmart (which has closed down since then)  I used it to make these beautiful smocked dresses the year Samantha was born (2000).  Sarah and Allyson wore them alot, including the day of Samantha’s baby blessing.  Now Samantha and Felicity wear them! Gotta love pretty hand-me-downs!

  Lawn fabric is a dream to smock on!  I used a smocking plate from AS&E magazine, and made up my own silk ribbon floral design

* These dresses are an example of what I can make.  If you are interested in having me custom make one for you, or looking for something specific, please contact me missy@fairychildheirlooms.com or 480-216-4737

About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.
