Making Progress

I'm making progress on Alice's dress:
The front is smocked, but not embroidered...

This dress requires backsmocking (smocking on the back of the dress to hold the pleats in place). I have 2-1/2 more rows of backsmocking to go.

Then comes the embroidery! I've done some bullion flowers before but this design calls for several stitches I've never done before. Should be fun.

Meanwhile, I'm finishing this up for my niece:
I have a few more leaves to embroider and then I'll construct it.
