How I made this simple Spring Shirred dress from deadstock fabric.

DIY Shirred dress tutorial.

This week I am using shirring to create a super simple dress shape that looks a lot more technical. This is the perfect project if you're a sewing beginner who wants to start making their own clothes. It's a really simple technique that does not require any complicated pattern cutting or technical sewing knowledge, just lots of patience with the shirring.

Although this dress is an ideal maternity dress I plan on wearing it for many summers to come as well.


This video is not sponsored and I purchased the elastic supplies I needed.
