True Love ~ Smocked Mini-Apron

on February 29 | in Sewing Tutorials + Patterns | by | with 7 Comments

The Smocking Arts Guild of America (SAGA) is here today with a free SAGA Stitches PDF pattern for Aimee’s Dolly Apron, a small project designed to help you learn smocking techniques.

Learn more about SAGA and smocking arts in their introduction, on the Smocking Arts Guild of America website and on Facebook. You can also easily check to see if there is a chapter in your area.

Download your free Aimee’s Dolly Apron PDF tutorial today. The directions show the use of a pleater, a specific tool designed to create evenly-spaced pleats in fabric. If you don’t have access to a pleater you can always visit a guild meeting, or there are also inexpensive iron-on dots you can easily purchase, evenly spaced in a grid to help you iron your own pleats. (You can also find pre-pleated inserts ready for smocking if you want to go that route.) We think a little smocked something would look perfect with our Sew Beautiful Reversible Baby Bonnet for spring.

    I have a 24 year old Pullen Pleater. Took classes ages ago. This will be a great way to get back into smocking! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the pattern! Are the printouts of the bib front and back accurate? They seem large. Carla
