Santa & Candy Canes hand smocked bishop

Finally finished this up today -- this is a size 7 bishop for my daughter to wear this month...thank goodness I got it done in time.

The smocking plate is called "Down Candy Cane Lane" by Junebug designs. I think the bullion stitched mustache is too cute!

Took a while to make, but I LOVE the results!!!

The tiny gingham pattern is such a nice choice for a Christmas Dress. I have never done picture smocking, though I have done smocking designs. I'm curious to know how it is done. Do you smock on the back side to hold the pleats together?

Sorry, I forgot to sign my name on the last post with the question about picture smocking.
