    Megan_listing

    This was my first shirring project. I had seen lots of dress with ties, but I wanted more coverage.
    I had to majorly adjust the tension on my bobbin so that the elastic thread wouldn’t stick.

    Cupcake dress.
    Originally it was suppose to have three layers of ruffles, but I ran out of fabric.
