Smocking - My very first attempt

I really, really wanted to learn how to use this elastic thread. And make an entire smocked top. But I know I have to start slow. Soooo...I smocked 5 rows on this pink, flannel-y fabric, and then added another fabric on with regular thread to make it a nighshirt.

However, I mismeasured for where the straps need to go. So I have to fix that so it fits. But I like the smocking! It worked out pretty well, and I can't wait to use it again. This was my test project - now I can do a real one.
