For my last kcwc project I went big and made a ….. yep, smocked dress. Okay, so I didn't tackle anything challenging this year. But I did make a top, a skirt, 3 pairs of shortie shorts and a dress. Not bad. I like sewing for girl in the Summer. Quick and easy! Fast and dirty. Serged and ready to go.
The idea for this dress came from this one which I spied on Pinterest. I wanted to do a big bow. So I made one, tucked it into a pleat and then cheater smocked the rest. Here are some directions on how to do the smocking. Really easy and awesome. The part I always forget is to stretch or not stretch the elastic thread as you're winding bobbin. Not stretch! Then spritz with water or stream and it'll shrink up like magic.
