The smocking is called Counterchange Smocking. I love doing this handwork on the pink gingham fabric. It was such a joy & delight to make these dresses for my youngest granddaughters.

Do you use a smocking machine?

Hello Stargazer28, I use a smocking pleater to make the gathers, but the actual smocking is all done by hand. https://www.google.com/search? If you google smocking pleater, you'll readily find images of this hand-crank machine used to form the pleats. If you google smocking - you'll find videos of ladies doing the hand work. Thanks for asking!
