Smocked bishop dresses are a must-have for every little girl’s wardrobe! On Connie Palmer’s Buttons & Bows Bishop Dress, the placket (or opening of the dress) is on top of one of the sleeves, and it closes with buttons and bows. Whether you wish to make a basic bishop or an angel-sleeve bishop–or an heirloom creation or a more contemporary version–the results will be perfect every time when you follow Connie’s masterful construction methods.
