Shirring Challenge!

Sewing summer dresses.  I have been searching the web for shirring tutorials; found a blue million of them.   I have a computerized sewing machine and nothing I did worked.  I almost gave up, but then decided to just wind the elastic thread as I would any other bobbin, sew with a normal stitch length and backstitch the beginning and end of each row.  SUCCESS!  I made my daughter a cute little dress that she wore to a party today and everyone loved it.  I thought I was going to pull my hair out trying to figure this out.  Once you get it, elastic thread is a lot of fun to sew with. All I can say is patience, persistance, plus trial and error can equal success.
