Here is Elizabeth's dress blocked and ready to smock.
Now I just have to decide what colors to use and put needle to fabric. Tonight. I'm going to bind the neck and sleeves in black to match her brothers red, black, and white vests. Looking at the thread, though, I wonder if I should just use black and white for the smocking. The red looks like it will get lost.
Here is the cute flannel I found for pajama pants for the boys and pajamas for Elizabeth. She'll get the shirt version of The Handmade Dress Miss Violet (below) and some long pants. The boys will just get pants and purchased shirts - the one year I made them button up tops, they complained about the collars.
I suppose I'd best get out of here and clean up the kitchen and finish the laundry so I can get down to it tonight. Wish me luck!
