"Thank you" to Debbie Parker for sharing this beautiful smocked bishop dress she made to donate to her church’s bazaar in memory of her Mom. She used Fabric Finder’s "bows" print cotton, Ellen McCarn’s "Beautiful Bows" smocking plate, Ellen McCarn’s "The Bishop Dress" pattern, Swiss edging for the sleeves. The model is beautiful Mary McElveen Dulany.

Bridget says, "I have been saving this darling insert smocked by my friend Tammy (Kiawah Crabs by Ellen McCarn) for just the right fabrics to come along. Paprika gingham & spearmint gingham are the perfect colors to make this simple sundress (Holly by Bonnie Blue). Sundress is lined in white broadcloth, ties are paprika gingham, and dress is spearmint gingham by Fabric Finders." Click for Close-up view
