Sure! I can Shirr!

I’ve been eyeing this ADDORABLE sun suit on Made By Rae. But have been hesitant because it required skills in applying snaps and shirring. After a few helpful tutorials and an evening and afternoon of sewing, this mama churned out THREE shirred outfits. Two sun suits and a dress for Marin.
The best part of shirring? Watching the fabric magically shrink when water and steam are applied (totally neato). ALMOST makes hand winding a bobbin worth it….almost.
