Smocked Dress

This is my first try with new fabric. I bought half yard of this fabric from Jo-Ann fabric store for $2. Smocked dresses are one of my favorite. So I decided to do it for this.. I looked into many smocked dress pictures before going on with this design..  Then I took a dress that fits perfect for my little one and took the measurements and made a pattern... I made Smocking for the back of the dress. I think the dress came up good finally... :)


  1. is that handsmocking or elastic shirring?

  2. it is not elastic. i shirred it with hand after doing long stitches. then used decorative stitching on top of that to give a better smocking effect..
