This is for those that have so graciously asked many times about my Cinderella Design plate. As I do know that the original design will not be published again, I think sharing it might be a good idea. It was first published in 1985 at my daughter's request. As you can imagine, Granddaughter Emma wore a Cinderella dress and it was one of her favorites.
With focusing on family in recent years, it was so frustrating not to get things done as I had planned. However, after so many requests for it, I just thought that it should be shared. Now comes the problem. Remembering how to add photos to this blog and have them readable. So, in that light, I have tried to create pages that you might use to recreate the design.
The Cinderella design is not a complex design but I think that it is probably an intermediate level for most smockers. I hope that the photos that I have prepared will give you enough information to smock this design for someone special. Here you will find the graph and stitch-by-stitch instructions taken from the original design plate.
I hope that those that have asked about this design can find it here. I love smocking and really love seeing it being enjoyed as our Miss Emma so often did. The dress she is wearing is actually one done by a commercial manufacturer who used the Cinderella design with a few changes...without permission and without any design credit. Oh well, Miss Emma wore Cinderella and totally enjoyed it.
