The Blue Yoke dress is put together

I sewed the baby cord piping on the back yokes lining up the center backs and the side seams. I had a little extra bodice in case I decided to go with a longer smocked insert on the front. I ended cutting off the extra b/c I didn't need the room after all.

Then I gathered the back skirt tops and put in the back placket. Then I sewed the gathered skirt to the yoke back and frenched-seamed the front to the back.

Finally, I put the dress together and it's ready for smocking. All I have to do is add the buttons and then hem it! Tommorrow I'll put together the red yoke dress.

I'm looking for the pattern you are using for the blue bishop dress: 'Bishop Dress pattern from The Classic Heirloom Collection by Ellen McCarn'. Could you please let me know where I can buy it? I've done a Google search without any luck, but Google did direct me to your site!

I dont have a web page but I presume you can email me directly from this message.

Thank you. Joanmary

Joanmary, I bought the pattern at my local heirloom shop. Maybe you can check to see if you have one in your city? If not, the information on the pattern says
