Hello Everyone........newbie here in Alabama where it is HOT!!!!


 


Would anyone want to discuss (and possibly attempt to teach *wink*) an old dog how to counterchange smock on gingham? I did it as a child and have totally forgotten how to do it.


 


Thanks, DScott55

I know I have an old McCall's pattern for a counterchange smocked dress I made for my daughter. I will dig it out tomorrow and refresh my memory as it has been A LONG TIME since I have done this. I can email you a scanned copy of the directions from the pattern if you would like.

WOW that would be awesome..........I have looked at books from the library but they are more for the advanced smockers I believe, of course if they can make the first stitch they have me beat.


Thanks again, Denise

use the ADVANCED SEARCH feature and use counterchange as the key word and you should get the discussion from a few years ago when I discovered it. I think I posted some photos too.
