That is so beautiful. Can you share how you did the shirring?

Loretta, here's a great link! HTH :)


... basically you put regular thread on top and use a bobbin wrapped with elastic. Then increase your stitch length to 4 or 5 and start going!

I only just discovered shirring, but I love it as well! The dress is gorgeous - I love the idea of getting together with a friend to sew - I don't really know anyone who sews nearby, but I wish I did. Your girls are beautiful as ever - Happy 11 weeks, Sara Paige! :)

Thanks for the link. That helps a lot. I can't wait to get started on a project for my daughter.

That is a great dress! And your girls just keeping getting cuter and cuter and cuter...

She is getting so big!! I can't believe it.

How did you learn how to sew? My mom is a fabulous at it. Mostly she quilts now days. I wonder if she could make a dress like that. Do you have a pattern? Or a link to the pattern?

Hi Susie! I started to sew when my oldest daughter (almost 3) was born. I've taken a couple classes but mostly learned through trial and error.

Your mom could definitely make a dress like that. I don't have a pattern for this dress but here's one you may like :)


Hope to help!
