Katie from Kadiddlehopper shows how she added shirring a loose fitting tunic. She made her tunic using the new Bess Top pattern from Imagine Gnats. The top has nice lines without the shirring, but cinching and blousing it is a nice variation. Her tutorial includes how to figure out the correct placement of the shirring so your top blouses the way you want it to. Go to her blog for the tute.
