[Note: I am using white thread for the tutorial only; you’ll want to match the thread to your fabric so it just disappears into the shirring!]
With your machine set up to stitch knits, insert your needle about ¼” from the raw edge (on my machine it’s about the width of the presser foot; which I used as my guide). Stitch a line of basting stitches along the length of the area you want to gather. Leave a long tail at the end. Do not backtack!!
