I decided to make sundresses for my brother's partner Celia and my sister Therese as their special Christmas present this year. I printed out Melissa's excellent instructions for making a shirred beach dress and managed to complete two lovely dresses in a day, which was very satisfying.

I chose a summery green, grey and white check print for Celia in lightweight cotton, and for Therese, a glorious multi-coloured print with vertical patterned panels. The colours will go beautifully with her auburn hair.

Once I got the hang of it, I found shirring fun, as Melissa promised it would be.

 I've nearly finished my Christmas productions.
Yay for that because I'm a bit pooped!!
