"Pat Garretson Smocking Patterns"

Pat Garretson is all about innovation in her clothing designs as well as smocking designs. Her whimsy shows itself in her imagery of her smocking designs. She is into shadow work embroidery as well as applique and recently has a fascination with gingham smocking in bringing her unique style to simple squares brought together with thread satisfying the counterchange smocking craze which basically died when the fabric companies stopped making striped fabric the proper guage. Each of her patterns is a lesson in creativity with ample instructions to keep you reading on and on and wanting more. Her design plates are featured on her original clothing patterns.
