Cindy left a comment on the last post and asked about the interfacing used in the smocked dress. Well, there's not really much to tell. I'm rather embarrassed to admit that I can't tell you the brand or anything specific about it other than that it was a very lightweight, non-woven fusible that I had lying around the sewing room. I'm sure it was purchased at Hancock Fabrics because that's really the only place I buy interfacing. I fused a square of it to a square of my cotton fabric and then cut the yoke out of the fused piece. The interfacing is very soft, so I don't think it would be scratchy or uncomfortable against the skin, but that doesn't really matter because the yoke is fully lined with the same floral fabric. So no one but me, and anyone who reads this blog, even knows it's in there.
I've been going through stash fabrics the last couple of days looking for some pretty floral cottons and lightweight corduroys to make the Princess some more smocked dresses for colder weather. I don't have anything ready to go yet, but I hope to have a new project underway soon. Oh, and I plan to get back to work on that UFO, too!
