of my boy's wedding outfits. As well as my daughter Wendy. Or at least that's my hope. It was a rennaissance themed wedding, and the boys didn't do so well when it came time to actually performing their duties. But, they did as well they could have for a 5:00 wedding with no nap.........
So, without further ado, well actually first I have to find the link again.

Wendy in her hand smocked and sewn dress (and I'm not at all bragging)

the boys in their outfits, I figured out that while this pattern looks really good, it is hard to sew. Each tunic had 8 darts, four on the front and four on the back, and they had to match up with the top and bottom parts. But, it did look really awesome. I'm going to have to look for a better photo to show it off.

Okay, well hopefully this all worked. I'm going to have to get better pictures of the boys outfits, because, I want praise for all my hard work :monkey: . Or, maybe it's just I want to share what I'm doing with others who'll appreciate all I did. All right, now I go to post to my next topic about my skirts I've made and other things.

I'll have to borrow my Mom's digital camera to get a picture of the smocking up close. I also have a couple of other dresses I've smocked and put together to show off. We've made several car trips recently and that's what I do in the car.
