How To Make A Smocked Top / Dress

Have you ever done smocking?  This could be a whole new sewing niche all by itself.  Pretty-Ditty Blogspot has a really neat top that she’s done the “shirring” on the fabric and made a top for her daughter.  The tutorial is great, and goes into detail how to do the shirring, then on to making the summer top.  Try making a few of these for your customer waiting area and see how quickly the orders stack up.

Well, since I’m a little on the “lazy” side, I got some smocked fabric that I’m going to make little summer dresses for our little granddaughters —- check out this fabric:

Already smocked – how about that?  Ok Sienna and Sarah, I’m on it – and to you out there, I’ll show you MY pictures just as soon as I get these made!  They’ll be cute, even though I didn’t do the shirring by hand.

NOTE:  Whether you’re doing the shirring by hand or buying smocked fabric – you could still sell a ton of these if you had some made up in a variety of sizes for toddlers through about size 8 or 10.
