I cut a new (huge) neckline, bound it with bias tape, then started sewing. . .
. . .with elastic thread.
That's right, I was trying my hand at shirring! I'd never shirred anything before and found it surprisingly easy! Less than two hours, one shirt, one cut, and one spool, of elastic thread later, my sister had a cute, frilly, feminine, tunic top.
I think I figured this whole shirring with elastic thread thing out! Check out my blog post to see exactly why and how I decided to make this top, despite everything else I need to get sewn this week. Now back to sewing Easter dresses so I can put this new found skill to use again!
