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.
In October 2016, the Mary De was updated and has an expanded size range now starting at 6 months, brand new instructions which include how to make unsmocked with a plain front bodice and to add an smocked insert, and an updated fit that still allows for the dress be worn as a sundress or a jumper.
Available Sizes: Sizes 6mo-3 or 4-8. See Measurement Chart in gallery for sizing.
Printing Type: Unnested on Tissue
I ship within 1-2 business days using USPS 1st class shipping whenever possible.
When I find that the shipping charged was higher than necessary I will refund the overage.
Shipping for Pleater Needles US customers
Needles are shipped in a heavy cardboard envelope to prevent bending. While this would seem to increase the shipping cost actually USPS charges the same rate for 1, 2 and 3 oz. 1 oz is the smallest weight I can use.
Based on this I have set a flat shipping rate of $3.00 for up to 80 pleater needles shipped in 1 package within the United States.

I am happy to ship Internationally but must calculate the shipping. Please request a custom order so I can add the appropriate postage for your country.
