Here to show you another toddler smocktop. (Tutorial HERE)
Sorry I have been a bit MIA. I haven't had much time lately to create new things or to blog about the few things I have managed to create.
Yesterday, one of the women I met through the local chapter of the ASG (American Sewing Guild) invited some of us over to help thin her fabric stash a bit. It was wonderful! Fabric shopping, with no cash register. I actually felt a little embarassed when I saw the HUGE pile I had picked out. But the hostess of the destash was so gracious, and simply asked me to send her pictures of items I made from her gift. There was some gorgeous printed seersucker, just perfect for a sweet toddler girl. So last night, after bedtime, I whipped up a cute little top for Delilah.
Not so happy in this next one:
Haha. Here is a shot of the back criss-cross of the shirt:
Now, this little criss-cross smocktop takes about 20 minutes total to make. That includes cutting time! And did I mention it's reversible? I used two different coordinating seersucker prints for the top.
If you are so inclined, check into your local sewing groups! I have met wonderful women through joining my local group -- and what a bonus to get all this gorgeous fabric!
