Jazzy Christmas Tree Bishop

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

A lovely smocked Bishop dress for the holidays! Use the long sleeve and your favorite holiday plate for a classic smocked Christmas dress. This look is completed by bias bands at the sleeves (see blog) for an extra touch.

Truthfully I will always love the look of a short sleeve much more than a long sleeve, but winter happens you know. And I really don’t like to cover up smocking with a sweater. This fabric is a pretty red cotton microcheck gingham from Fabric Finders. To me it is the size gingham (1/32”) that is most suitable for a bishop pleated by machine. I think smocking it on a red microcheck gives it a fresh new look. - Melissa
