Smocked Sundresses and an Itty Bitty Baby Dress

Boy-oh-boy am I slow in posted (and completely finishing) these dresses!

Ok, so these dresses have been done for awhile but were part of a super-secret surprise gift for a friend.  I made the Itty Bitty Baby Dress from Made By Rae for her new addition (due any day now) and a Smocked Sundress from Heather Ross for her little girl.

Of course, I couldn't stop at just one Smocked Sundress - Lil Hoot needed one too.  I did the straps differently on Lil Hoot's dress.  I knew she wouldn't stand for straps that tied at her shoulders so I made straps by encasing elastic in a fabric tube.  It's easy-on that way.  What I didn't consider is that it is also incredibly easy-off.  Lil Hoot is constantly taking the straps on/off her shoulders which allows the dress to slide on down and expose her top half - not really what you want to happen at church on Sunday.
