I made this shirred summer dress to try out shirring.
For the fabric I used two of my mothers old tunics that she didn’t want anymore and I was happy to see that I could actually reuse some of the pretty embroidery and lace. I didn’t use a pattern, just messured my body and cut out some rectangles. The shirring and the gathering did all the shaping.
