I can't believe my Mom found this!
We thought all the smocked dresses she made us were gone. She loaned them to someone at church, but, sadly, never had them returned. :(
But somehow this one was found in her closet and it fits Ella!
I wore this for the first day of school in the third grade. It was my FAVORITE dress my Mom made at that time.
I remember spinning around and sitting down and watching the skirt puff up around me.
I felt like a princess every time I wore it and I still get that same feeling when I see Ella in it.
She looked so beautiful for church on Sunday. :)
I still want to learn how to smock... maybe my Mom can give me a little lesson when she gets her this weekend! I'm so excited!
I love that lace edging on the collar, too.
