Smocking

Of peasant origin, smocking is a decorative means of gathering a wide piece of material into a required measurement. The word “smock” comes from the Anglo Saxon–smoce–meaning a shift or shirt. There are different types of smocking: outline, cable, double cable, trellis, diamond, feather, honeycomb, surface honeycomb, and wave.
