Southern Stitches Ready-to-Kits - ready to smock - ready to sew!

Smocked Bishop Dress Kits include partially constructed dress with 8-9 rows pleated rows. Shoulder seams are stitched, you will finish off sleeve hem with a narrow hem or your own lace. The bias neck band is cut to size and buttons are included with a size label in a little zip-lock bag.  I use only quality fabric in my Ready-to-kits. The ginghams are Nashville Cottons and the Batiste is either Martha Pullen Heirloom Batiste or Spechler-Vogel. Quality fabric makes a BIG difference in the look of your finished dress! Three PDF files are included: a tips & instruction file for finishing, a PDF smocking plate and a PDF Bishop Blocking Guide. All PDF's are available for immediate download after payment. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Please allow 1-2 weeks for shipping - most often I can get at it within a couple days, but sometimes I am plowed under - LOL!
