My Next Doll Bishop
I bought it to make my Martha doll a very special dress as my souvenir of my trip to the Fashion District in NYC. It will be a smocked bishop with pearl trim on the sleeves and hem, along with lace with ribbon weave at the bottom. I am really excited about it. I will be using some of the techniques I learned at the Martha Pullen heirloom sewing seminar last week while making this dress.
I cut it out yesterday and plan to put it together and pleat this afternoon and being smocking tonight. I am thinking of smocking with white, but rather than just three strands of white DMC floss, I think I will do 2 strands of white and 1 strand of peach. Or, if I thought it would work, I could try 2 strands of white and 1 strand of metallic. Hmmm.... there's a thought......
