|DIY Shirred Top|
|Trash To Couture|
As the weather begins to warm I'm always inspired to start sewing my Spring/Summer projects. For my first look, I wanted to make a top that could easily be paired with a jacket but also transition as a stand alone piece for summer. To create the gathered detail I used a technique called shirring. Shirring is two or more rows of gathers used to decorate parts of garments. You can do this on a bodice, neckline, and waistline. It's a simple technique and all you need is Dritz Elastic Thread. Get the details below on how to make your own Shirred Top. Supplies: Dritz Elastic Thread 1 yard light weight fabric: The lighter the fabric the more effective the shirring will be. Try light cottons, chiffon, knits, gauze, etc. I'm using a light cotton material previously from an old skirt. Brother Sewing Machine General sewing notions Read more »
