My first expirience shirring and it was probably the easiest dress I've ever made! Lots of fun. Hope you like it!

Lovely. I struggle with shirring so I am awed that you did it on stretch velvet.  I like the neckline too.

Thanks everyone!
For the shirring--I used elastic thread and also I think it might have actually made it easier that the fabric was so streatchy. I'd try it on a knit or something and see if it makes it any easier. Also, I didn't really follow the directions on the website I was looking at but here it is just in case... http://sew4home.com/tips-resources/sewing-tips-tricks/everything-old-new-again-fabriccom-how-do-shirring
