I just had to try my hand at shirring.  It is easy, but takes for.ev.er.  I might never do it again!  I do love my little dress, though....

I just took an A-line skirt that I had, extended the top straight up, and added the ruffle to the bottom.  My mom helped me (which is why it is a finished dress instead of sitting in my studio waiting to be done!).

Pics.

Here's the front.

Here's the back.

Here's a close-up of the shirring. 


It is the perfect thing to wear on a sunny day!

So cute. Really fab job. I know all about how long the shirring takes, but the end result is so great, it almost begs you to do it again. Almost,lol.

your dressis beautiful. Im trying tomake a shirred top as my first sewed items! Unfortunately my machine is older than me (just!) - 1976- and you have to turn a handle which keeps getting stuck and my elastic gets all caught up. oh well ill keep perserving - or save up for an electric sewing machine!
