Thanks everyone for the compliments. My niece loved the dress :) *BeckyW* It's not hard at all. Shirring is one of the easiest things to do. Everytime you sew a new row you stretch out the fabric so you are sewing flat fabric, but that's not difficult.

Very cute!!!! Is it hard to sew rows as you go along? I would think you would have to stretch out the elastic in previous rows as you sew the next row. Is that hard?

Gorgeous. I love the fabric combinations. I think I will have to give this a go sometime.

Terribly cute dresses and models. I have some elastic thread. Now all I need is time and talent!

Those dresses are adorable! I want one! Yes, please please explain how you did the sheering in the tips section. It looks very RTW.

What a great idea. My young teen DD wants one of these and the ones in the stores are icky or overpriced. Or both. I would never have thought to use elastic thread in the bobbin. Please, Harmony, put this great idea in the tips section.

Adorable! I wore dresses like this quite a bit as a child and teen - so cool and comfortable.

Very cute dresses and adorable baby girl. Nice save on the peasant top fabric too, and very smart to use it to experiment...very successfully!
