Smocking by hand
There will be a lot of hand smocking in the spring/summer collection. I forgot how much I love to hand smock. I love most hand stitching. I get into a very quiet meditative state while stitching. It's so rhythmic. Each stitch, though small, is proof of accomplishment. The perfect little symbol to remind whoever sees them that someone took the time to thread a needle and create them. They could quite possibly be like snowflakes, each stitch unique, no two are alike. A tell tale sign they were made by a pair of human hands.
