I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I figured out how to shir (some people call it smock) with my drop in bobbin. I think I knew then that this newfound knowledge could be trouble. It is.
A couple nights ago I made Baby Hannah a dress while Adam watched the Mavs game. Then, I took advantage of our cloudy, rainy weather yesterday by working on dresses for Keadryn, Sayla and myself. Yep, if you’re keeping track, that’s 4 dresses in a 24 hour period (not all of them are finished, mind you). And, last night, I kept debating whether or not I should crawl into my lovely, warm, bed or head downstairs to shir some more. Also, I bought four more spools of elastic thread. Trouble, I tell you, T.R.O.U.B.L.E. Beautiful, darling, wearable trouble.
Here are a couple of tutorials so that all of you can join me in the shirring madness:
-A great shirring tutorial for the non-drop-in-bobbin-types at portobellopixie.
-If you have a drop in bobbin, this how-to at prudent baby will change your life.
