Smocking is not in the least difficult once the method has been thoroughly grasped. For some reason it is much more popular in England than in the United States. Abroad it is used a great deal for small children on little dresses of the simple smock order. They are very quaint and picturesque, extremely comfortable and becoming. Smocking done in colors on fine white batiste, silk mull, or nainsook makes pretty guimpes and dresses for children and very smart blouses for women.
