I think I have decided on one of my next projects.......a sweet little dress for my Elisabeth. The pattern is Larkin from Maja's Heirlooms and I am going to follow the variations that were in issue #105 of Sew Beautiful magazine back in 2006.
Thankfully my Elisabeth is still ok with smocked garments. I was thinking she might not care for another bishop dress so I started looking at Maja's patterns. She has several that are adorable. This particular dress I remember seeing in person at Maja's booth at the SAGA Market in Atlanta a few years back. It is beautiful!!! I tried so hard to talk Emily into letting me make it for her at that time...but she was already past wanting smocked dresses at that time.....(sigh). But...like I said, Elisabeth is anxiously looking forward to wearing this dress.
I've never used a Maja pattern before...so I figure I'll be doing some pattern measuring to try and make sure it fits well. But I think it's going to be fun! Now to get the pattern cut out and started!!!
