The pattern is 'Maggie" from Childern's Corner. I made Size 1.
The instructions for smocking were very detailed as were all the steps except for the part when the collar gets attached. I found that step #10, vague.
I am not too thrilled with the gathers at the back neck. I had trouble getting the collar to sit properly.
The back is smocked, and the neck edged is gathered. I wonder if it will be too bulky for the wearer?
I used a pretty yellow pique with a duck print. I bought 2 yards for $27.00 several years ago at a SAGA convention.
The pique smocked beautifully. The pattern was quick to smock. I used up all of this trim on the dress. But I have 1/4 meter of the pique leftover.
I don't think I'll make this pattern again because of the back neck.
