Vintage Pattern - Simplicity 4826

I've treated myself to a 'new' pattern to add to my collection.

This beautiful 1960s dress has a bateau neckline and smocking at the upper edge of the front. 

I'm hoping to make this in the future, maybe as a tunic top. I've never done smocking before but I think that it's an unusual feature and it would be a nice skill to learn.

I love just reading through the instructions for sewing patterns, that's not weird is it? My mother does the same thing with cookery books.
