This was my first attempt at shirring and the whole dress from start to finish only took 1 hour to complete. I made the dress following instructions from “Sew Hip” magazine. Instead of using jersey I used cotton fabric.
The dress used just over 1 meter of fabric, 11mm elastic and approx 3/4 of a bobbin of elastic cord
