Jamie from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom shows how you can make a shirred maxi dress for yourself. The elastic thread shirring makes the bodice stretchy so there’s no fussing to get a perfect fit. She used a knit for the one she made, but you could use any lightweight fabric (voile, rayon, quilting cotton, etc.) Go to her tutorial.
