so this was my evening entertainment last night. inspired by this post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49544.0

 i got the fabric really cheap (like $2) at the local second hand shop, and it was my first time shirring ever! a fun and fast project.




criticism is of course welcome.
thanks for looking!

Yay! That's such a cute top Smiley That post you linked made me want to try shirring too, and I think I'll have to after seeing this! Is shirring as scary as everyone thinks it is?

Very pretty Smiley Love the material  Grin

I've almost finished making a dress that looks a lot like this (but purple flowers and with straps) for all of those of you scared of trying shirring - don't be! It's really easy after a tiny amount of practice and it looks so good when its done!

Be brave!
