This little smocked top has been floating around the house for about 6 months.
I wasn't happy with it, so it never got put away into a wardrobe with Adelaide's other clothes. In fact, it was sitting around on the sofa in the living room most of the time - a lost item that never had a home.
It went from looking like a cape one might wear at the hairdresser, to a cuter gathered sleeve top.
Adelaide is happily wearing it now with a white pair of the favourite pants.
I've got a few other smocking panels that are half finished that I might now be inspired to make into a similar style.
