Rachael from Imagine Gnats shows how to shir fabric with elasti thread. Elastic thread shirring is an easy way to make stretchy gathers. You’ll often find it on the bodice of sundresses or strapless dresses. I’ve also seen it as a panel on the back of dress to get a snug fit without requiring a zipper. Go to her tutorial to see how.
