I am NOT cleverer than Ottobre
There’s only one thing I have to say about this shirt: when Ottobre or any other pattern instructs to use spool elastic thread, do it. Just do it. Don’t zigzag over regular elastic thread. Don’t. Because it will multiply your sewing time. By a lot.
My shirring doesn’t go as high as in the pattern because my rows are closer, but it still looks good. A straightforward pattern, really🙂
