I made a dress using elastic thread that ended up being to big. The shirring worked ok, but the fabric I used was slightly heavier that what I have used before for shirring, so it didn't scrunch up as much as it usually does. The fabric is a weird knit with printed on flowers, but when stretched the flowers actually break apart, that is why I decided to shir it. Since it is to big I am wondering if I can just take it in a few inches, without re-doing all the rows of shirring? I am worried that if the elastic thread gets cut (I backed stitched it on the edges) that it may pull out. Has anyone every taken in something that had rows of shirring? Thanks!
