Pattern Description:

ABOUT THIS PROJECT: These very easy instructions are great for those with basic sewing skills. Shirring is a very easy technique - it's as simple as sewing a straight line. The Aivilo Shirred Maxi, Sundress & Top are fun, quick projects with an absolutely beautiful finished item. Not just for summer, you can pair your dress or top with a turtleneck and jeans and take this feminine style into cooler weather! Instructions are included for sizes 6 months to girls 14.

Cutting instructions are included, not printable pattern pieces, so no printing is required!

  • Coordinating thread
  • 1 package of 3/4" elastic
  • Safety pin (any size) to pull elastic through the straps
