Shirred Dress

Sewing Project: Shirred Dress with Appliques
I thought of not sharing this dress because I still owe you more on the last Knit Rossette dress I showed you. But it is such a beauty, I just can't resist. So here's my first successful shirring attempt:
shirred  dress with bird applique

I just added some contrasting band at the hem and shoulders to give it a pop of color. And appliqued a tiny bird. I have thought of a nice technique to finish the neckline next time, but I'll share it with you once I do it. A lot of things feel very nice in my head but look awful
when I actually sew them.
