I learned to smock when my daughter was little and made her quite a few dresses, etc. I stopped as she got older but when I had my first grandaughter (and only one) I started smocking again. I made Jenny all her birthday and Christmas outfits plus matching American doll outfits until she got older. When Jenny was just 2 is when my husband had the terrible accident that put him into a wheelchair. I started smocking quite a few things for Jenny that I never got around to sewing. They have sat for quite a few years (she will be 18 in Feb.)and when cleaning out last summer I came across a few of them and decided to finish them and give them to my daughter to put away for future little girls. Between 5 grandsons and Jenny I hope at least 1 of them will have a girl. I brought one down to florida with me and have started working on it. I took a couple of pictures of the smocked pieces and here they are.
