Spent all day figuring out how to shirr/smock. That ....was not fun, but once I got the hang of it, it went AMAZING! I like it so far :D! It's not quite as swishy as I originally wanted but I was being more stingy on my fabric.
All thats left is to train the elastic through the top, and sew the ruffles along the bottom of the dress and then sew the center back seam straps.
I'm currently debating on whether or not to use horsehair braid for the ruffles :3!
