Shirr It Up, Shirr It Down


Had some fun with shirring and a metre of fabric last night. Apparently you can shirr the top of your dress...



Or you can shirr the bottom.

Both dresses are composed of simple straps
A half metre of fabric, and lots of elastic.

I think the pictures are self explanatory, but if you need a tutorial, just say the word.

Ok, me again, I just watched this you-tube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WckKmm1cPFs) after googleing shirring and I'm so stoked. I had no idea it was that easy. I'm off to buy some elastic thread!
