This is one I'm very happy with. I started this dress in April. Of the few smocking projects I've done, this is by far the best. Improvement should come with practice and so I will keep practicing. It is very enjoyable to do. A nice sit down project.
The pattern for the dress is Kimberly's Sundress from Classic Smocking by Cheryl Lohmann.
The Smocking Pattern was a variation I did from a free pattern called Symphony of Roses.
