Who knows which decade I started this but probably more than 25 years ago.  I went through a smocking period when Laura was born 28 years ago. One Christmas she had about 4 Christmas dresses I smocked.  Crazy. We had embroidery floss in our meals.  Now I find remnants like an archeological dig of other lives.  Mine.

  1. My mom went through a big smocking phase, too! There are many pictures of me as a wee tot (2, 3 years old) wearing dresses she smocked. It must have been “the” thing to do in the 1970s. 😉 Since I don’t forsee this style coming back any time soon, I vote pitch this one.

  2. Yes, pitch (donate). Some nostalgic soul may be drawn to it.

  3. The photo preserves the lovely memory.
