I recenly had the priviledge to visit a small smocking exhibit, where despite the small space, it was packed with so many wonderful pieces of fabrics and clothing that I couldn't get all the photos I wanted as the place was packed and I was jostling elbows with the people next to me all hell bent on getting snapshots as well!
I'm in love with this sample book!
tiny little clothes stitched with tiny examples of stitches...i'm in awe!
Its a nice reminder to break thngs down into small pieces...you can't smock a dress if you are a beginner but you can smock a tiny little sleeve or dress sample!
...reminds me to build back up my portfolio...*gulps*
Can you do smocking? What do you think?
