    Beautiful dress! I’m a bit intimidated by Canadian smocking. But now that I’ve seen your gorgeous dress, I’m determined to try it. How much extra fabric do you need for the smocked lower half?

    I love it!!! I used the lattice smocked technique that looked like that, I immediately fell in love. But you did a great job with the construction and pick ups.
