Ok, the word connection might be a bit of a stretch more like influenced by Royalty and it all started with baby Prince William. You might notice he is wearing a little smocked shirt. My friend Donna sure noticed when pictures came out of the little Prince in smocked clothing. Donna came over one day and said she wanted to learn to smock would I go to class with her. Ah, first, what is smocking and why do we need to learn it? Donna replied, “ Because the baby Prince William wears smocked clothes”. I was still not sure what that had to do with us but agreed to take the class. It wasn’t until I saw smocking up close that I realized that is what Grandma had added to my Sunday best dress and yes, my baby girl sure would need some dresses with smocking on it.
With the wedding just days away it brought back memories of so many years ago. I started thinking will Kate and Williams baby wear smocked clothes? What if its a baby girl, can you imagine the baby fashions we will be all set to copy.
