I had a dress already in mind and this was the perfect pattern for it. Pattern was fairly easy to follow (I am a novice). There are different ways to do smocks, not sure if this was the best one, but perhaps I should have used more elastic and completed the smock before starting to tighten it. I made some changes to the straps – added wide ones to cover bra-straps instead of the thin ones in the original pattern. Love how it turned out, and it is very comfortable too.
