Smocking is one of those things that can vary from day-to-day and person-to-person.
This was a fun one. I had originally started out with a triangle in the front of her head. It was a one-ponytail kind of day. She said I wasn't done, so I went to town.
I parted straight over from the back of the triangle on either side and pulled them into elastics.
Then I separated each of the three ponytails in half.
I pulled the inside part of the left ponytail to the left side of the center ponytail.
Then I did the same to the right side.
I left the outmost halves of the ponytails out and curled them slightly at the ends.
I curled the other two ponytails.
And then curled the ends of the hair under.
