George, South Af...
My first try at shirring! This project took my so so long!!! But I’m happy that I learn’t a new technique, and I have already applied shirring to two other projects! I loved the material… but it turned out not quite as I hoped, I think a more lightweight material would have made the dress slightly less puffy :) I also struggled a bit with the instructions, particularly for the skirt part…but maybe this is because it was holiday and I did not quite had dedicated sewing time… picking up and leaving again is never good.. and thats also way it took so long to finish! Well, with this dress comes a new years resolution: setting proper time aside for learning new sewing techniques (maybe I will even find a workshop / sewing classes?)! I’d love to learn how to do proper pieces of shirring quickly :)
