The Hague, Nethe...
The regularity of your honeycomb structure all depends on how neat and regular your pleats are placed in the fabric. To help make them as neat as possible, I marked the part of fabric I wanted to smock with chalk. I made three rows of dots, all at 2 cm (1 inch) appart from each other. Feel free to mark more rows, if you want a larger smocked surface.
