Little Pink Bishop
This is a sweet little bishop day gown that I made for a shower gift a year ago. I had so much fun making this little gown. I used a bishop pattern from Grandmother’s Hope Chest by Martha Pullen and some soft cotton in a delicate print from my stash, and once I had it pleated and shaped on my pin board, I started the smocking. I didn’t use a smocking plate, but rather made this up as I went along. Then I finished the gown construction.
Funny how you see things in hind site that you would have done. I look at this and wish I had added little seed pearls to the smocking. That would have looked so nice. Ah well. Too late now. But I will have to remember that for the next gown.
Enjoy! Merry Gay
