Summertime cotton for a sundress
The pattern "Erin-Lindsay" by Yvonne Denise was used to create this darling dotted swiss dress.
Using the smocking design "Jennifer" Roberta accomplished the needlework in a soft lavender color.
Another smocking source for the summer dress is AS&E # 82

Another member who attended the 'Kinsey' sew along workshop has completed her version. Cynthia used a Liberty of London fabric, a variation of an AS&E smocking design where she substituted cast on flowers (knowledge acquired in a Gail Doane class) for the bullion roses. If you look carefully you will spot the pearls used to accent the flowers.
This precious bishop dress was constructed with imperial batiste. Teresa is pleased with the results as she learned a new technique of applying the neckband from our own President who lead a bishop workshop for our members.
A closer look at the smocking

Midnight Oil Smockers are multi-talented!

The two baby quilts were sewn from kits, one with flannel fabric and the other from Minky...these quilts will look sweet on any crib.
