Q&A with sewnsew
Thank you "sew" much!
Thanks a bunch!!
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!
