Smocking is a traditional craft, it's still done today the way it was in the last century, nothing new has been invented and the designs, by the very nature of the craft, have the same overall look they have always had. Of course, the fashion of the dresses to which they are applied change and the colors you might currently choose to work with might currently might be different, but the process of smocking will be the same whether you use dots or a pleater or gingham. Though this is true, even if you are advanced in this craft, there is still much that can be gleaned from this book. It is an excellent source of ideas, instructions, tips, explanations, and projects. All the projects are lovely and timeless. The instructions are clear and easy to follow.

I am an intermediate smocker and it's taken me a long time to reach this level of proficiency. I'm finding smocking to be one of those skills you can't just jump into: you have to practice and practice and practice. I'm happy to have this book to give me the incentive to keep trying
