Smocking, those little embroidered gathers that decorate clothing, are a great classic of ready-to-wear. The word comes from the verb 'to smock ' (gathering with stitches that cross diagonally), and you can also find this decoration in art. In the 18th century, "smock" was used to describe the loose cotton overshirts worn by English farm workers. This technique made it possible to make the garment fit without the need for buttons and to have a little stretch at a time when elastic hadn't been invented! And of course, smocking added a decorative detail to clothes: every region had its own patterns and character. Since the 1920s, smocked dresses have been stylish wear for the children of the upper classes, to the point that the smocked dress, as we know it, with puff sleeves, a belt tied at the back, and a Peter Pan collar... often features in photos of the children of royal families! However, you don't have to wear a crown to be allowed to wear a smocked dress.
