Well, this is my very first smocked frock. To block smocked fabric accurately is bit difficult and tricky for beginner like me.
For waistline belt, i smocked crossover wave stitch, half wave stitch, cable stitch and alternating cable stitch.
For waistline belt i also used pyramid cable stitch. For whole body part , smocking is done using six step Trellis stitch. Trellis stitch is worked in diamond pattern and also crossover technique is used with two different colors red and green.
