Just like Dori or ‘Sprial Straps’, smocking is also one trendy trend that has been travelling around the world of fashion. You will find this technique used in many clothes hanging on those shopping mall racks.
Smocking is an embroidery technique used to gather fabric so that it can stretch. Before elastic, smocking was commonly used in cuffs, bodices, and necklines in garments where buttons were undesirable.
Not only is the embroidery style trendy, but it has also been a classic style to go with your garments. It is absolutely cost-effective and fashionable at the same time.
