Custom Orders


Today we have new items for sale on the etsy shop.  I decided to list a few of my basic outfits.  I make a basic bishop pattern.  I have made a bunch of these, but they all have different lengths, sizes and smocking patterns.  Some of them are geometric, and some of them are picture smocking.  Also, there are smocking plates that I have never done and are waiting to be made.  So, I have 2 listings for a basic bishop dress.  One listing is for a baby layette set.  It is a bishop dress with bloomers and booties.  I can make it however you would like.  The second listing is for older girls and can be made up to a size 5 (for a 5 year old).  It can also be made just for you.

The next new item is a boys romper.  Some people call it a John John.  I am not sure what is the correct term, but I make them.  This is, once again, a basic pattern that can be made just for your little guy.  There are so many cute picture smocking plates for boys and they can be made into a cute outfit.  I have done whales and monkeys.  Keep in mind that picture smocking is not the only option.  I can also do geometrics for a little boys outfit.

So, send me your orders.  Both of these items can be made for Thanksgiving, Fall, Christmas, Winter time, Spring, Easter, Summer, and the list goes on.  I have also seen some cute football smocking plates.  If you do order, keep in mind that the pricing will depend on the type of material you would like and the smocking plate you choose.  For example, broadcloth and checked material is less than a batiste or satin. 

I will be waiting.  My smocking hands are ready.

Fall Items and Tutu

So here is my first attempt at a Tutu.  It is not exactly the best job, and it needs a model.  The colors are my favorite part, because for some reason it reminds me of Tinkerbell.  Molly helped a little at the start, but when I moved everything to an elastic strip, she was too busy to help.  I think she will do one on her own next.

Also, I am showing a list of items that are in my Fall Outfit section.  I enjoyed making each one and can't wait to send them to you.  If you are interested, contact me through or you may email me at
