Shirring (or Ruching) adds interest and lovely, figure-flattering detail to any garment. It's EZ and fun to make changes to a basic knit top pattern you already own using flat pattern techniques to yield the extra length needed for effective shirring. In this pattern, you'll find THREE totally different designs, and varied shirring techniques that will guide you in creative fun as you add pizazz to that all-important knit top wardrobe to take you most anywhere...in style.

You will use any basic knit top pattern as the 'beginning'. Just follow my super EZ directions to create the styles you see on the cover. Then, the amazing additional directions found both printed inside and at the online location as given inside the booklet will allow you to: READ the printed directions with the most important photos printed; SEE every step of the process with numerous color photos posted online; and HEAR the directions as I actually talk you through each step step-by-step as you view the photograph of that step!

Mom taught me to sew - then put me on a clothing allowance: $25/MONTH - but that was back in 1966. The ONLY way I could satisfy my clothing appetite was to make it myself. That lead to a major in Home Ec., managing a craft store, custom dressmaking - running my own fabric store/machine dealership from 1990 - 2003, and now I travel the country presenting my classes on creative sewing at sewing expos, guilds, and shops. I have a website: www.londas-sewing.com, blog, facebook, pinterest - all that good stuff and try to do it all - but well. Goal: sharing the love of creative sewing!View all patterns by designer (14) »
