Based on free pattern from Burda Style: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/a-plus-a-line-by-twinkle-by-wenlan Thanks to Twinkle by Wenlan! My inspiration came from the book The Art Of Manipulating Fabric and some instructions from the Learning center at BurdaStyle. I wanted to keep the fullness of the skirt, and apply a quick and fun technique of machine smocking. I used the same decorative honeycomb stitch to sew the hem and the topstitching on the yoke. Another change to the pattern is the lowered waistline (with about 5 cm).
