Smocked dress 1974


I'm experimenting with 14th century smocking/pleadwork (blogged at medieval silkwork here). While looking for honeycomb stitch tutorials, I found this gorgeous smocked dress from 1974 (and I love this color too.. :-) Smocking can be a bit frumpy, old fashioned, but here it's used in a totally modern way. The image is from a Dutch translation of the Time Life Needlecraft series from 1974 (I can't find the original English title in the book.)
