This is lovely! Maybe if you loosened the elastic a bit that would stop it riding up? Such a pity to give it away!

Mary, good idea I used an elastic cord and zig zagged over it just enough not to catch the cording but to hold it in place. Initially I drew all 6 lines on the fabric, but then after doing 1 of the fronts, I just drew the top line and then used my sewing foot to guide and space the next rows. There are 6 rows total. After the elastic cor was sewn on I pulled it at the ends and it gathered the fabric up. the pattern gives you instructions for this and also tells you how much to gather it based on your size. It was really easy to do. My stitch length was 3.0 and my zig zag width was 3.0. This seemed to work well.

This is really cute. Can you explain a bit how you did the shirring??

I think this is my favorite too, Sue, although all of your recent blouses are so pretty and romantic looking.
