What a great book! It has wonderful illustrations of stitches, full patterns and great ideas. I loved looking at the book and can't wait to try some of the garments and stitches. I especially like that I will be able to use this book to smock for my grand-daughters past the baby age.

This book is great for anyone who wants something more imaginative and contemporary than the classic square yolk dress and bishop dress smocking designs. The designs are interesting and unusual, and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. The instructions for the stitches are well illustrated. The book even includes instructions for fun, coordinating accessories. Proves that smocking need not be confined to traditional, conservative garments. I am really enjoying this book.

I loved this book of smocking designs and patterns. I bought several and gave as gifts. It would be a great addition to any sewing library.

This book has excellent info on smocking as well as some embroidery stitches. The designs are modern and there are enough
small projects to get you started. The book also includes full size patterns for some of the clothes. I would recommend this book
to anyone who wants to get started smocking.
