I was excited to find an inexpensive original edition of Helena Buehler's 1916 Simplified Smocking!
The cover is done in color- very pretty!
Here are some little girl's dresses with touches of smocking. My favorite is the lower right with the shaped panel of smocking.
Rompers- my favorite baby clothes! I love the one with the shaped yoke and the sailboat. It reminds me of the Drew & Erin's bubble I made Andy when he was a baby.
Here are some long baby coats and little girl coats. They are so pretty, but wouldn't work too well in today's carseats, would they? They would be lovely for a winter Christening, though.
The back cover has these pretty photos.
There are several pages of Helena Buehler's designs. I think these were for sale at the time.
Can you believe this book is from 100 years ago!!??
