This issue showcases gorgeous smocked garments for all age groups, from tiny baby singlets to an elegant ladies blouse. For little girls, there are three sweet dresses with traditional smocking, two bright sundresses and something warm for winter.
As usual, we have included patterns, complete instructions and hints and tips for each project. And of course our beautiful projects are all presented with the world-class photography for which our magazine is so well known. Readers’ letters, photographs and stories all add interest to this exceptional issue.
