Goose Girl Smocked Dress

I recently "organized" my smocking UFOs (unfinished objects) into zip lock bags in a basket on my sewing desk (also my computer desk/writing desk/kitchen desk). I have at least 12 garments in various stages of completion, from smocked bits to completed garments that need to be smocked. This dress was someone else's UFO- bits of fabric and the smocked dress front. I  was limited in what I could do by how much fabric I had.
I didn't have collars or sleeve bindings, so I did a Swiss eyelet edge on the sleeves with elastic and a ruffle at the neckline. I like it- it's something different. The pattern is Chery Williams' Baby Square Yokes, size 24 mos. It still needs to be hemmed.
It is fun to see how changing the colors makes it look:

What a lovely dress! The Swiss edging is the perfect touch at the neck and sleeve edges.
