So a friend of mine is having her first, a little girl, and I thought I would try my hand at a smocked bonnet. So we got out mom's new machine and christened it with pleating this bonnet as it's first project. I took a bunch of shots just cause I couldn't tell what would turn out. I tried getting some up close shots of the detail work. Mom suggested doing the white on white design so I did. Since I wasn't doing a dress for her making it mainly white would help it go with more outfits. I used the baby doll as my model, lol. :) And I still had some of those lavender ribbon roses that I got back when Charis was born so I used those in place of a ribbon rosette at the neck ribbons. My friend's favorite color is green so I made the drawstring ribbon in the back green and she absolutely loved it!
Well, I hope you all have a lovely weekend! And if you're in FL I hope you are enjoying this gorgeous weather as much as we are! :)
