    Smocking

    Smocking is an embroidery technique used to gather fabric so that it can stretch. Before elastic, smocking was commonly used in cuffs, bodices, and necklines in garments where buttons were undesirable. smocking developed in England and has been practised since the Middle Ages and is unusual among embroidery methods in that it was often worn by laborers. Other major embroidery styles are purely decorative and represented status symbols. smocking was practical for garments to be both form fitting and flexible, hence its name derives from smock a farmer work shirt.smocking was used most extensively in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
