With Lisa

Class Overview

You might have come across shirring elastic in some of your ready-to-wear clothes – if used to sew multiple lines in a panel it creates elasticated gathering that can be used to add style, fit or decoration to a garment. It’s often billed as something a bit scary, but if you take it slow and listen to what your sewing machine is telling you then you’ll be the master of shirring in no time.
