Easy Peasy might be a little misleading...
Let me rephrase that, Easy Peasy Once You Teach Yourself How To Do Shirring Summer Skirt
I've never done any shirring before. Quite frankly, it scares the crap out of me. So I bit the bullet and decided to try it. It actually is easy once you get the hang of it, but it took a lot of wasted elastic thread to figure it out and let's face it, that stuff isn't cheap!
So I started with this cotton T I got at the thrift store for a BUCK! Score!
I promise I ironed this before I cut it up!
And here's what I ended up with. It's super comfy.
Two things I would do differently:
1. Add a few more rows of shirring. I ran out of thread after wasting so much learning.
2. Mine needs to be a tad smaller. This is kinda big so I'm giving it to my sister.
Once I got my settings right and figured out the shirring, it was easy peasy like I said :)
I have 2 more T's I bought that day in gray and black so I'll be making more of these!
A skirt for a BUCK, you can't beat that! Go get yourself some!
