Sewing A Shirred Dress

Ever since it got warm here in Madison, WI, I've had dresses on my mind. This soon led to pondering how to make a very simple, summery dress using my small stash of cotton fabric. I thought that a shirred dress would be the simplest to make (it is just a big tube with rows of elastic near the bust), but I did not know of an easy way to sew in all of that elastic. Enter CRAFT blog's recent post on elastic thread!

And since I found the included video to be so helpful and interesting, I'm posting it here for you!

Expect to hear more about this as soon as I acquire some of this magic thread!
