I know this is super late but I think those sleeves and waist are shirred instead of smocked. Shirring will make it stretchy. There is a shirring tutorial somewhere - do a search for "shirred tutorial".  I don't know if the wool will give you the same poofy look but I would think it would look nice. I don't know about shirring wool though - I've only seen thin fabrics shirred. To get that look you could smock the wool but it is a lot of work.  To do that kind of smocking you just make a grid with dots and sew the dots together horizontally from the back- the space in between becomes the raised part.

I saw this and was like UGH - that's like every ugly spring jacket my mom bought me when I was a kid! But imagining it not pink and made of wool makes it so much cooler (warmer?). That and some crafty embellishments.

Good luck!
