Default Re: would this be similar to the pillowcase dress?

that looks like shirring. when you wind the bobbin with elastic instead of thread. it draws the fabric up so it looks kinda like its smocked. really easy to do, and all you need is some 0.98 elastic from walmart. smocking is beautiful and very time consuming, this is quick but not near as artistic.
