I went to the artist's web site, you could just barely read it on the picture  at flickr and she has a a number of cool tutorials, including a link to you tube video of someone sewing a sample. I don't speak portuguese but I her tutorial use the word passo-a-passo and this is a link to her tutorial

This is extra cool for me since about half of my students are from Brazil and she has 2 other great tutorial at her site that will make wonderful projects at school. I think they will love that they can read the instructions and "help" me.

Oh, wow! I didn't even think to look at her flickr profile for a website.  That YouTube video would've been incredibly helpful to me! Tongue

I translated the blog page using Babelfish, which was quite humorous but gave me a better idea.  Thanks for the tips!

Coolness! I've seen somebody do this on TV years ago, but she went too quick so I didn't even remember the technique. I think she made it into a cushion cover. Smiley

Thanks a lot for posting, will try it soon.

I love this kind of smocking. I know traditionally it's used on a bodice, but I think it would make a fantastic sleeve, or inset under the bodice on an empire waisted dress. I saw something similar to this on the Tudor rose purse here:

and have been wanting to try it myself.
Beautiful job!

Oohh! I really, really like the basket weave effect used on that purse. I'm going to have to look for instructions for that one.
