Kathleen from Grosgrain and The Tumtum Tree shares a video tutorial for shirring fabric. If you don’t know what this is, it’s creating parallel rows of stretchy gathers with elastic thread. It’s easy to do and is great for making sundresses, skirts, and tops that stretch to fit. Go to the video tutorial.
