Shirr Thing For Spring: Day Five-Shirred Project Round Up

There are so many different ways to use sewing in your projects.  I really didn't branch out much to explore the different applications, but sometimes it's nice to stay in your comfort zone.  

If you are still looking for the perfect shirred project for spring/summer, here are a few fantastic options.

I love this Shirred Mod Top from Sew Retro Chic, it comes complete with a photo tutorial so that you can make one of your own.

If you're looking for a lightweight skirt for the summer, this Smocked Maxi Skirt from Morning by Morning Productions could be just what you need. The Shirred Waist is sure to make it very comfortable. Tutorial provided.

 If your looking for an easy swimsuit coverup for summer, Dana of Made provides a tutorial for this Shirred Beach Towel Dress.

I love the shirred waist detail on this Polka Dot Mini Boden Knock Off, by Erin of Sutton Grace.  You can find her blog here, and the original post and tutorial here. (Craftiness Is Not Optional, is currently having some technical difficulties, and I had trouble viewing the original post, but check back for the tutorial).
