Cute dress

I bought this pattern to teach my granddaughter how to shirr fabric by machine. The instructions could have been better and regular font for the type would have been much preferred.

Simply Adorable and Adorably Simple It's Shirr Fun

I loved making this dress. It took me a while to get things right but with help from Jeri, the designer, everything worked so easily. The pattern has a version for the tube style as well as the blouse and hints for a maxi style as well. This pattern is now my favourite!!!
