I love the casual elegance of this dress. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't pull your elastic thread too much and don't cut any threads until you're absolutely sure you've shirred your fabric to the correct width. It's a real hassle to let it out again.

What you will need

  • Cotton material

A really cute dress. Your "How To" instructions are great. I love the way you passed on your boo boos so that others could avoid those easy to make mistakes. You have a great sense of humor. Your dress is "Summer Stylish."
