When I told my Gram the other day that I had made Reli a smocked dress she responded with shock and awe "Really?! I never had the patience for all that embroidery, but Mom used to do it." (Mom being my Great-Nana who passed away before my father was even born.) At first I couldn't figure out why she was impressed, and then it hit me, she thought I was talking about this...
Whatever you call it, I made it using elastic thread and that's all you need to know! But in deference to Gram and times past I'm going with the "technical term" of shirring just this once. ; D
|How cute is it worn as a high waisted skirt?! |
Another great thing about this skirt is that it is made from one rectangle of fabric, and takes next to no time to make! Plus I think it really might fit Reli until she is 5. The fabric is something that I got for 60% off at Joann's. It's by Debbie Mumm, but it didn't have a "name". Here is a close-up.
Thanks for Visiting!
