I like the smocking stitch pattern in this pattern and think it would make an interesting stitch maybe in a tank or sweater. I also think it is so nice of her to include a tutorial on how to do the stitch. I have already written down some stuff to start a gauge/stitch swatch. This stitch obviously reminds me so much of these little shirts/dresses my mom use to put me and my sisters in . . . maybe that's why I like it so much.
