Gotta Try That: Shirred Sundress

This is my neice, Whiteney. Isn& she cute? I am glad she was willing to be my model because my own kids are spending a couple of weeks at.

Single Seam Sundress - just buy material at Joann Fabrics, comes pre-shirred and elasticized so you sew a single stitch to close it based on your size!  Different lengths and patterns available.

I picked up some Little Mermaid fabric as a remnant. I thought the fabric was called "pre-smocked" but from this it is a pre-shirred , elasticized fabric.

Came out...ok. The shirring with elastic thread didn't smock as well as I wanted.
