I have long looked at shirring on dresses and thought to myself that is seriously advanced sewing and not for these amateur hands. So it came as a huge surprise to me that it is so easy. Agggesss ago I saw it on Sally's blog and realised that it was all about the elastic in the bobbin! WHO KNEW???
The fabric is from some friends of ours who went to Vietnam, isn't it gorgeous?
I am slightly disturbed by the look on Busy's face, and yes that is our blue toilet in the background. So if you have been scared of shirring I urge you to get yourself some shirring elastic wack it on your bobbin and get sewing- it is quite satisfying and really easy.
