Smocking for Girl's Clothes
This book starts with a simple Peter Pan collar dress pattern, and provides 15 different smocking designs for the pattern. Buy a ready-made dress and smock it, or start from scratch and make the dress pattern from the book!
Note that the book is written in Japanese, but patterns and schematics are included. Crafters who cannot read Japanese but who have some sewing experience are usually able to interpret the instructions without any trouble, and others can use the projects as inspiration for their own creations.
