But what exactly is a smocked dress? How and where to pick the right one?

Smocking is the art of embroidering geometrical or figurative shapes on top of tightly pleated panels of fabric. This craftsmanship began in the 18th century and became very popular during the Victorian era in Europe. The most classic design most often features a Peter Pan collar, puffed sleeves and a butterfly bow in the back. You can read more about the detailed history of this know-how here.
