This picture (above) is the cable stitch. This is the most basic, most commonly used stitch in smocking. The look of the cable depends on whether your thread is above or below your needle. (don't understand it? it may be a little confusing but if you want you can always ask for help!)
The stitch that creates the "v's" is called the trellis. You use the same concept as the cable stitch but you gradually walk up the pleats, then back down.
Here's what we have so far. I'll post more pictures as we progress.

brains and came up with this special little dress....
