My daughter picked out this fabric on sale, and I turned it into three projects. Here are the first two – a shirred girl’s dress with flared sleeves, and a matching 18″ doll dress along with matching sandals.

Shirring is quite fun, and an easy way to make dresses and skirts, since the elastic means that you don’t have to put in a zipper or buttons. Just slip on the dress and the rows of elastic make it stay up and fit nicely!
