Note that this was a 2011 Challenge
Create a Smocked or Pleated Garment
Challenger: Baroness Rainillt de Bello Marisco
Portraiture of the 15th and 16th century often featured people wearing garments that were pleated and embelished. The challenge is to create such a garment.

The challenger knows that documentation is sparse, and therefore asks that the focus of the challenge and the documenation should be on the embroidery and embellishment techniques rather than proving the construction of the garment or the pleated surface, however, do be sure to include information and/or photos of your inspiration piece(s).
