Description

A self-designed project. Several creations on BurdaStyle prompted me to have a go at shirring. I bought 3m of cream cheesecloth and had a go. Gradually, the project evolved from being just an experiment, to a top with a fully-shirred bodice, to a dress, to a dress with shirring at the top and under the bust (I realised how long it would take to shir the bodice completely, so I opted out!) The result is very pleasing – I must admit it is not very neat by any means, but who cares? This fabric allows me to get away with it :) In fact, this is perfect for the Tropicana night my college is having next week! I dyed the cheesecloth purple (it turned out way brighter than expected!) and I made a petticoat to go underneath.

Material Notes

3m cheesecloth; about 10m hat elastic; matching thread
