I kept the smocking colours as close as I could to the fabric colours.
The pattern is an unusual and attractive set of interlocking diamonds.
I joined the front and back before pleating and smocked it all as one panel.
In constructing I varied a bit from the suggested method. Rather than attach the smocked panel and lining together to the skirt, I attached the smocked panel to the skirt and used the lining as a facing.
I edged the skirt frills using a small , close zig-zag right on the edge, so it formed a tiny roll-over.
It looks a bit odd on the coathanger, but will hang OK on a Brigid I think. I don't have a photo as yet, but will add if I get one.
