A Smocked Dress for Daisy

When I am picking a fabric for my next project, I often get caught up in the colors and patterns, forgetting that sometimes the simplest of designs can be the most effective. Daisy's mom, my good friend Audrey, had purchased some of our Raspberry Corduroy to make pillows for Daisy's room, and so I thought raspberry was a good place to start for a dress for Daisy. I fought my "go with the floral pattern" inclination and choose Raspberry Dot Cotton Broadcloth for Daisy's Dress. The pattern is Gail Doane's Bishop from So Cute Couture, but any basic bishop pattern would work. Raspberry Dot Cotton Broadcloth has a lot of body, so I would choose a bishop pattern that isn't as full.
