It's not a mistake. It's...um...a design feature.

I made this super simple, easy dress from some thrifted fabric.  It's still ridiculously hot here, and will be for another few months yet, so I decided to go ahead and make another sundress!  I've made shirred dresses that were just a smidge bigger than I am around (before shirring), and ones that were double my size.  It appears the best measurement is 1.5x your bust measurement (before shirring).

Your shirring is so tidy. Lovely dress.

I think I shall try your measurements as I often get it wrong.

The great thing about shirring is it's not actually that tidy, but you can't tell.  I used the edge of my presser foot as a rough guide.
