I tried shirring (sewing with elastic thread) one time on my little Kenmore Mini Ultra sewing machine, and it was a bust. The poor little machine just couldn’t handle it! But I could tell that if it had worked, it would have been cool. And this little dress made from a man’s shirt solidifies that. It’s so darling, and perfect for summer, which is close around the corner. The tutorial is easy to follow, and if you’ve never tried shirring, it’s easier than it looks (just use the right machine!).
