Mary De is the classic wrap-in-the-back sundress and jumper creating a V-back. The dress fastens with two buttons, and the bodice is lined. In addition to the original smocked dress, Mary De can also be made with a smocked insert or unsmocked with a plain front bodice. Our easy-to-follow smocking instructions will make this your favorite smocking project. The smocking design shown on the cover is Kelly by Ellen McCarn.
