    Oh, thank you for your comment! So do you, and I especially like your Christin dress :-) I wish you were my neighbor so I can call you up and ask for a fancy dress for parties!

    Actually, my wonderful sister (who is also on burdastyle) taught me. One thing I forgot to tell you is that the elastic comes undone a lot easier than regular thread, so make sure you tie your ends together or something to keep in in tact.

    I can’t wait to see your creation! I too have had some friends hire me to do alterations, make things, etc. It’s so much fun!

    The gathering is so so so easy! Just hand-wind elastic thread onto your bobbin, which will automatically add tension and create perfect shirring. I had to adjust my bobbin thread a bit to get the look I wanted, so make sure you have some test pieces.

    Seriously, if I can do it anyone can do it. I’ve only been sewing for about a month… I wish I had your skill!!

    Uhhh, I definitely just got the pattern you used for the dresses with the ties on the sleeves, and I was wondering if you had any problems with the pattern sizing that they have.. Cause, it says I’m a 14 in their patterns, when I’m a 6… I tried their patterns before, and it said the same thing, but I tried the 8, and it was wayy too big.. please help!?
