Ok I was supposed to be providing you all with another instructional pattern for an easy dress but I think I overestimated my abilities as I have only ever made one shirred dress before & well I can only call this dress a prototype at this stage. I spent more time trying out ideas and quick unpicking than I did sewing and taking photos along the way! I am pretty happy with the end result but there are steps in the process that need refining before I try to explain it to you as I think I will just end up confusing you.
*I would prefer the band on the bottom to be larger and more flowing as the thinner band is stiffer and ruins the flow of the dress.
*I would like the top row of shirring to be higher on dress as the top of the dress hangs down a little too far for my liking.
*The straps could use improvement.
I will endeavour to make another dress & hopefully streamline the process so it’s easier to explain. Keep your eyes on my facebook page & I will let you know when it’s on my blog.
