Christmas nightdresses

My Christmas smocking effort was a nightdress for each of my granddaughters. I used the Primrose Lane, Victorian Dreams for Girls pattern for all three.

So preoccupied was I with the building work that it seems I did not take a single photo of the nightdresses in the making. I thought I had taken some of the smocking in progress - but either I am mistaken or the photo fairies have wiped my cameras clean! I have mislaid one camera - so just maybe I will find them.
Fortunately, the two youngest girls liked their nightdresses so much on Christmas Day that they put them on and wore them for the rest of the day! 

You get the idea. 

Brigid's is long, a blue polished cotton smocked in blue with four crocheted medallions  (purchased not made by me) on the hem.

So cute! They look gorgeous. You are a no reply blogger so I don't think you receive my replies to your comments through email. Have a wonderful New Year and enjoy your stitching while it is hot.
