Smocking from Oscar de La Renta!

It is soo nice to see smocking in the clothes from high end designers.  Oscar de La Renta has a beautiful smocked dress in his children's wear collection! 

      This sleeveless dress is smocked from the shoulder to the high yoke.  The pleats are then released, but smocked again at the waist.  A beautiful dress for any young lady!

     There is also a few traditional outfit for little boys.  They are not smocked, but still cute as can be!

     It is so nice to see little boys looking like little boys!  Reminds me of when mine were little.  They lived in John John suits and OshKosh overalls.  Hard to believe how quickly the time has gone by.

     I am getting ready to head out to the Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, WA.  If you are attending, please be sure to stop by my booth to say hi (#632).  If you are going to the SAGA Retreat in Vegas (same weekend), have fun!  I wish I could be in 2 places at the same time.

     I will try to post some pictures next week - lots of things to do and see.  I will be posting the information on the Santa Barbara weekend in August (with Cindy Foose and myself).  They are closing the retreat center where we hold it, so I am not sure what will be happening in 2014!

    I will talk to you soon,
Happy Stitching,
