I followed the directions for this teqnique – http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/top-with-shirring – and this was the result. the lovely lady in the photograph is a very dear friend of mine who recently lost alot of weight and is dealing with ill fitting clothes. I thought she would enjoy something bright and sunshiny. and it fit her beautifully ! also, it was easy, i intend to make several more for myself!
