Hello fellow sewing goddesses,

So I thought I'd make this nice sundress from lightweight satinish kind of fabric. The back panel is way to big and instead of taking it in at the side seams, I'd like to do some whirring with elastic. So far, I have only done this in the round, after side seams were finished.

Now, I wonder if I have to shir first, before sewing back and front together, or stitch the side seams first and then do the shirring (without cutting the thread or otherwise backstitch at beginning and end of each row.)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Sew the side seams first than do the shirring.
