Shirring or smocking is a very easy method that I've used for my blue blue dress and my floral summer dress among other things. I'll try to explain how you make it, but my english isn't that good, so just ask if there is something you don't undersand!

Technique Materials

elastic thread, an empty bobbin(?) and a fabric (not to heavy)
