Rosalinda (free) smocking plate


Another Beautiful free smocking plate for you.  This one was also done on my Smocked Babydoll Top pattern with wider straps and the binding done wider so that the bullion roses could be added.  It has 3 sections of smocking with  rows left unsmocked to create puffing.  I think that puffing looks so cute and delicate on little girls.


If you have a little one that likes pulling on her clothes (and stretching out your beautiful work) then I have a little trick that I do to it to prevent that from happening, or at least to help prevent it.  I’ll post about it soon, I promise.

Rainbow free smocking plate


What an adorable design, what little girl doesn’t love rainbows.  This smocked design is a rainbow of lazy daisy flowers on a base of smocked trellis stitches.  The pattern for the top here is my smocked babydoll top pattern.

Smocked bishop dress for Blythe

This is a pattern to make this beautiful smocked bishop dress that fits blythe and other similarly sized dolls. Pattern includes instructions on fabric cutting, pleating, and assembling the dress. Dress closes with snaps or hook and loop tape in back.


It does not include instructions on how to smock or a smocking plate.

I recommend a pleater with half rows or pleating by hand if yours does not have half rows. Dress can be pleated with 5 half rows.


This pattern is a fun pattern to experiment with, cut is short into a top, shorten the sleeves or lengthen them, leave only the pleated section and create an angel sleeve. Since only small pieces of fabric are needed it can even be done with lace trim. (Last picture was created with lace lined with fabric and sleeves shortened to angel sleeves) Please note that this is a full pattern with 1 pattern page to print and 11 pages of sewing tutorial, this pattern however has not been tested by anyone other than me!!!  Because this pattern has not been testing it is being offered at a super low price of only $1.50.
