Shirring Top, #M7901

 

Have you ever made a shirred garment?

I have tried it over ten years ago.
If I remember correctly, I randomly picked up the pattern that didn’t have Shirring and hoping to fit.🙄
Of course, it didn’t go over my head, LOL

Hopefully, you don’t have to go through what I went through with these tutorials below.
Here are great tutorials for the shirring that I recommend.

Pattern:#M7901, View A
Fabric:FabricMart
Made size:10

Modification: shorten 1″ at the hem.
The instruction says to secure thread ends inside at one side seam, but I sawed without cutting(lift the needle and position to the next row and sew).
I secured them by backstitch instead.

Note: If you have an auto thread cutter on your machine, I would not recommend using it because the elastic thread goes back inside the bobbin case after you cut the thread.
It is a pain to rethread each time. 
I may shorten an inch at the underbust area if I make this top again. I still want long sleeve view.

By the way, what do you think of inspiration images that I made with my fabric picture?
I was inspired by TipStitched a while back. She uses Photoshop, and mine was created by Illustrator. I am super excited about my new skill!
I have posted a video on my YouTube. Go check it out!!
