this is part 2 from my smocking post on 3.10. i have made some progress on the pleated panels of fabric. fairly easy and entertaining to do. it is somewhat like knitting, in that you have to pay attention to where your thread is in relation to your needle, and you have to pull on the thread with the same tension with each stitch. now i just have to stitch the same pattern on the back panel, then sew the two panels together to make the dress. should be done by next summer?
