Abstract:

For hundreds of years, smocking--decorative stitches worked over tightly pleated fabric--has been a favorite technique. Now adventurous sewers have embraced the style again, experimenting with new methods and materials and inventing fresh and fascinating effects. Newcomers can start at the very beginning by following the instructions for all the basic stitches; fabric use and preparation; pleating; and adapting existing patterns. But, the excitement comes with the original designs (all shown in color photographs) and the creative ideas for using embroidery, beading, and quilting as accents. Just see how lovely a smocked gown looks when embellished with delicate bullion roses and diminutive pearls. Or, stitch up a dainty drawstring bag, elegant holiday ornaments, or a tiny Christening dress. Nothing could be prettier!
