The week before the Fourth of July, Joel’s mom helped me assemble and pleat a dress for each of the girls. Originally, I was going to just make a calico print dress for Ella with fabric I fell in love with. But, you see, I had this piece of seersucker that would fit Sophia perfectly this summer. You see how the story goes. Two it became.
One stitch at a time and slowly the pattern emerges. In time, two smocked dresses, one happy mom, and many more dress ideas brewing in my head.
