Elastic shirring is really fun! The Carter dress uses elastic shirring to create a blouson fit with a cinched waist, paired with a square neckline and raglan sleeves for a modern peasant look.
You can raise, lower, or eliminate the shirring to customize your dress, and the loose fit is perfect for lightweight and medium-weight woven fabrics, like chambray, rayon, or linen.
