There's nothing quite as satisfying as putting the finishing touches on a project that's taken awhile. I was starting to think I'd never get this little dress done! I was so happy to finish it and so eager to box it up and send it to it's destined owner, that I took these pictures on a wet dreary morning. Oh well, at least it wasn't cold, too.
That's 297 French knots, y'all. Take a good look because I'll probably never do another project with that many knots. It really wasn't that bad once I got into a rhythm, but still- I'm not planning on smocking this plate again.
I'm off to give this dress a final pressing, fold it up just so, and put it in a box filled with pink tissue paper. Then it's off to the post office tomorrow! And then back to work on the Wardrobe.
