As promised, here is a photo of where my shirring fascination took me next. It's a typical little girl's dress with shirring and spaghetti straps, made with a little scrap of fabric I had left from a Christmas project. I looked for online tutorials and found this one useful. The model in this picture is much fluffier than the actual recipient, and I can guarantee you it looks even cuter on little Molly. If the idea of spaghetti straps puts you off, or you've just never tried making it, look at this tutorial over at SewMamaSew. It's really changed the way I feel about turning over a tiny tube of fabric!
