Flower Smocking is stitched on the right side of the fabric. It creates folds and puffs. It consists of pulled stitches and slack stitches that are worked on a marked grid. Please realize that it does not stretch like pleated smocking.
In researching Flower Smocking, I did not find a lot of information about it. One vintage pattern I have called it Snowflake Smocking. All of the vintage patterns that I've found are of pillows.
The dresses with Flower Smocking are available in three different sizes :
"Hailey" - sizes 3 to 7
"Baby Hailey" - sizes 6 to 24 months
"Dolly Hailey" - for the 18" doll
WARNING!!! Flower Smocking is very addictive!
