Smocks are fun; rather making the bodice of a porcelain dress is an adventure that leads to joy. To get started however you will need to consider design.
How to choose design your smock:
In the first row, you will need to knit stitch your design into the 799 DMC. The stitching process is the cable stitches, which you knit to produce patterns that resemble twisted ropes.
The second one and a quarter line requires the baby waves stitched over another ½ line followed by another 1 ¾ baby waves over another ½ line, which should form the shape of a diamond with an additional line at 1 ¼. The following line should be two ½-baby waves over another ½ line and continue to the next line at three ¼-baby waves moving to the other side at ½ line into another diamond shape and a line at 2 3/4. Finish with a 4-line cable stitch.
Next, you will collect the top of your dress to the seams of the shoulder at the back and front yokes and complete the seams by crisscross stitching and pressing the bodice at the back and on the folded line.
If you want easy attachment of your pattern to the collar, you will need to trim the piping. Next, begin sewing your piping to the other side of the collars and a the untreated edges.
TIP: Use greaseproof paper and place it beneath the collars to continue stitching with ease.
Once the piping and the collars are collected at the area of your facing collar, attach side by side to the right and use stitch pips to finish the following lines. Next, cut the seams and then trim around the collars. Press after you turn your seams to the right.
You want to mark the front center yoke and make a line, marking it so that it aligns with the back of your bodice. Pin your collars so that it is placed with the neck and join with the front center. Once you place your area, begin sewing about the garment’s edge and around the neck toward the center of the back whilst leaving the facing liberal.
Bring the facing on to the other side and join it so that it collects with the seams of the shoulders and the front center. Now stitch about the garment’s edge and around the neck the same as you did on the prior stitch. Cut, and press after you turn your garment on the right angle. Now, stitch pip so as to, cross the right region and the yoke at the front on your seam lines.
The facing should be liberal. The front smock area is now ready for you to complete.
To complete the smock you will need materials. You will need 28 inches of light tone and plain-woven soft, smooth fabric made up of linen or cotton.
You will need to choose a small pip, a few long, narrow buttons, size 50 cotton thread broder, embroidery thread, and so on. Once you have your materials make your pattern and cut two frontal yokes, dual fold yokes for the back, sleeves, bands, collars, (4) rear waistline, band for leg, and 1 front and back segment for pant fold. Next, use starch and spray your fabric. To attach your pips use the zipper or pip foot.
You will need to finish your smock starting with your plate, front smock section and fitting the yoke at the front.
Once the yoke is fitted you can join yokes and keep the pips near the first row, you will need to knit stitch your design into the 799 DMC at this time and finish your design.
