Sew Beautiful #145

I have been waiting for the newest Sew Beautiful to be up on their web site before posting these pictures.  It is still not up but I will go ahead.........

This is my latest creation in the magazine. I absolutely love this photo!

If you have your issue, you may notice that the title of the design is different from this photo.  When I am creating a design I usually give it a working title (or two) so that when I am exchanging emails with the Sew Beautiful editor we are on the same page.  One dress a couple of years ago had the working title of "The miracle dress" because it was a miracle that it got finished.

The title "Plum Wonderful" got ditched after we realized it sounded like a dietary aide! :-)

This is the cover of SB #145.

Just to give you a little detail on my design process, These were two of my rough smocking designs.     Last summer when I was down at Huntsville for the Martha Pullen's school.  Kathy B and I  spent our lunch time doing a show and tell. 

I showed her my designs and she showed off new fabrics and ribbons.  That is when we realized that my bottom smocking design looked like some fabulous maroon ribbon that they had just purchased.  Kathy knows that I love all things maroon! Gig em Aggies :-)

 We put it all together to create this!
