Smocked bishop dresses are a must-have for every little girl’s wardrobe! Featured in Classic Sewing’s Summer 2022 issue, this version of Connie Palmer’s popular Buttons & Bows Bishop is picture-perfect for summer. This kit includes Riley Blake fabric in your choice of two colors: pink or aqua, along with Swiss edging, ribbon, buttons, snaps, embroidery floss and needles. It includes fabric and trims for a girl’s dress in sizes 6M up to size 6Y and also includes enough supplies for the matching doll dress. Note: the bishop pattern and Strawberries smocking graph are not included in the kit.
The Strawberries smocking graph, designed by Janet Gilbert, is included in the Summer 2022 issue of Classic Sewing magazine.
The Buttons & Bows digital pattern package includes the downloadable child’s dress pattern (6M–6Y) and instructions, 18″ doll pattern and instructions, and a bonus geometric smocking plate. The pattern package can be purchased by itself, or you can take our start-anytime online class with Connie (which includes the pattern package plus a video tutorial) to receive all her tips and tricks for the construction of this adorable dress.
