1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Shirring will be the death of me. Good-bye cruel world. on: June 17, 2008 06:51:29 PM
I feel your pain!! I had the same problem when I first tried shirring, and after much swearing and adjusting things I realised the elastic thread had somehow completely bypassed the bobbin tension. Probably not the cause of your issues but worth a check.

If you still can't get shirring to work maybe try sewing over clear elastic.. Vegbee's tutorial is here: http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2007/07/gathering-with-clear-elastic.html

Good luck  Smiley

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Hi  Smiley

So I saw the amazing patchwork dress made by Vegbee (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182354.0) and it made me want to learn how to sew. Thanks Vegbee  Grin

This was maybe a little too ambitious for a noob like me but it's wearable and my friend's 5yo daughter loved it.

Here is the front -
And the back -
And a twirly action shot -

Thanks for looking!
