How to sew a smocked version of the Amuse Boho

Smocking the Amuse Boho Top from One Thimble Issue 14

As soon as I saw the sneak peeks from this issue I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the pattern to hack it, to accommodate some smocking into the centre front panel.

Ajaire underskirt pattern hack for the Raglan Party Dress

I’m Ajaire from Designs by Call Ajaire and I’m excited to share with you a free underskirt add-on for the Raglan Party Dress from One Thimble Issue 13!

The underskirt is attached to the bodice lining and the rest of the dress is exactly the same as in the main pattern so it’s a perfect supplement for the upcoming holidays.  Add in a bit of tulle to the bottom of the underskirt and it takes this sporty dress up a notch and turns it into the perfect party dress.
