Tucks, gathers, entredeux and reverse lace shaping
are all employed in this design.
Give it a try and see if this doesn’t become one of your favourite gowns!
Students came back to make a second or third gown
having worn out the first they had made!
|Not centred yet...|
|Done and centre is marked.|
Be sure to keep stitching!

What a wonderful job, Julie! Bravo!!
And then I decided that I could create a motif to match on her Christmas Santa Sack.

|Smocked in pink with Surface Honeycomb stitch - 2 rows full space high, 3rd row half space high, all stacked.|
Just to be on the safe side,I’m going to make an extender lest in case the armholes be a bit tight. This will also give a bit of extra length as well. To do this I will cut a new double ended tab for each shoulder with a set of snaps for fastening to the original snaps. I will have to blog about this later once I see if it works.
