Pattern: BWOF 07-2009-104 made out of a bed throw from Urban Outfitters. Yeah.
I bought that sheet thing because it was something like $6 and a lot of yardage. Figured I could do something with it. And here’s..something!
This was my first time doing shirring, and it went OK. The fabric has a really loose weave, and the shirring didn’t end up as tight as I wanted it to. I used the method where you put the elastic thread in your bobbin and use a straight stitch. I will probably go back and try again, or try a different method, because I feel like I have no waist in this dress.
Otherwise, it’s super comfortable, I love the rolled-up sleeves, and the collar & collar band was very simple. Surprisingly few steps for a Burda pattern!
I’m one straight stitch & two buttons away from completing Burda 08-2009-107 – the trench skirt!
