I loved the combination of red and white in these dresses. In addition to two-color smocking, the collars and cuffs were worked with

hand-embroidered loop trim, and then a red thread was whipped through the loops. The red thread was also whipped around the holes in the eyelet trim around the bottom of the skirt. The collar was further decorated with red daisies.

Daisy Chain
May 23, 2008

I wish the details of Daisy Chain showed up better in the photos of the full dress. I really wanted to do something in black, white and red for a specific doll I admired from the collection of a friend.

Daisy Chain the same kind of white loop trim as Peppermint Candy Swirl, this time whipped in black. and it had A LOT of very tiny french knots, worked in red red thread. The knots were in the center of each rosette in the smocking, the centers of the daisies on the collar, spaced evenly around the collar and cuffs, as well as decorating the centers of the daisies on the eyelet trim at the bottom, which were outlined in black.
