I went to a smocking class with the Rose Trellis Smockers, a local branch of the Smocking Arts Guild of America. I learned so much. I can't wait to practice my pleats. Here are garments brought by our teacher Cindy Foose. They were such an inspiration.
There was a visit from The Smocking Queen as well, who waved her beauty queen wave in good luck to us. Thank you, Queen. I will need it in my future smocking pursuits!

|The main fabric is 100% quilting cotton, and the smock is Kona 100% cotton in white.|
|I inlayed a 3 inch smocked panel into a basic tank top pattern.|
|The back lining is extended a few inches to cover the back of the pleating, and finished with a small button closure.|
|It's wearing well, and doesn't feel as delicate as I imagined it would. This is the start of a long smocking habit, I'm sure of it.|
