This is a sneak preview of the bishop I'm smocking for a friend. She brought me this gorgeous light sage corduroy and wanted wreaths smocked for her size 2 granddaughter...I adapted the smocking plate a little (As usual!) and did beads and a bow -- the original smocking plate was Ellen McCarn's Holiday Greetings.
I should finish it tomorrow and I'll post the final shots before I pass it on to her.
This bottom right picture was just so you would see how a bishop dress looks after you smock it and before you finish it off...weird looking huh?
