honeycomb smocked dress

Okay, so it's not quite finished.  The lining needs hemmed.  It currently has no buttons or buttonholes and the sash isn't there yet.  But it's close.  I can finish it in the morning and whip up the matching bloomers that go underneath.  Mom claims that it reminds her of a Shirley Temple dress.  You know, the one from Stand Up and Cheer

I told her that it just wasn't so.  Yes, they're both white with red polka dots, and they have square necklines, but that's about where the resemblance ends.  Evie likes it, and it'll be a nice, cool dress for the rest of the summer. And most likely next spring, too.  I'll post pictures of the absolute finished product tomorrow!
