The first technique is constructing a classic white bubble or dress which has smocking attached to the yoke. Pattern #104 was used for the bubble and the dress.
Our second technique will be sewing a smocked insert into a garment.
Pattern #123 was used for the sundress and the sunsuit. Once again, the students will be able to choose whether they want to make a boy or girl outfit.
And our final technique will be a smocked bishop made from pattern #135, with a Madeira hem. All of the smocking designs, except for the bisop, are in the new "Beginner Smocking Book."
I know that you are probably wondering how we get that much sewing done in 4 days of classes! I never promise that you will complete your garments in class, but that you will learn the techniques, learn new sewing tips, and have a wonderful time!
