This project has been a lot of fun so far. The pattern is the Cotton Bam Boo Smocked Top by Classic Elite. I am using Kollage Corntastic, a 100% corn yarn (yup!) in Coral and Jade. Obviously Im also making it into a dress.
I had a lot of trouble with the gauge. I ended up using size 3 needles on the bodice and size 5 and 6 on the skirt. The smocked pattern was easy once I memorized it, and now I just have a few hours of endless stockinette to do...
Here are some pics of the bodice.
I worked very hard to make sure the seam was nice and neat. Finishing techniques are something I need to practice! I hope to have the skirt done in the next two weeks or so. Stay tuned!
