How To Sew
A Smock Or
To Making A Smock
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
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 1/2 line followed by another 1 3/4 baby
waves over another 1/2 line, which should form
the shape of a diamond with an additional line
at 1 1/4. The following line should be two
1/2-baby waves over another 1/2 line and
continue to the next line at three 1/4-baby
waves moving to the other side at 1/2 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.
