I'm wowed by anything shirred.  So what is shirring anyway?  Shirring is an application consisting of  rows of pleats or gathers on a dress, giving off a particular wrap effect harking back to Mid-Century fashion.  These days we're seeing shirring mostly on bodices.  It's hot right now in bridal and evening wear, especially with tulle, chiffon or any transparent fabric forming soft folds.  Here's a medley of some of my own shirred candidates I turned out to the world of wedding couture. . .
