When several rows of gathering ( three or more ) are required for decorative finish

there are called shirring .The rows should be evenly spaced . After drawing up the

gathers from each end towards the centre , and distributing them evenly bring the

machine threads to wrong side and tie up each pair separately .

Using a stay under shirring where extra strength is required a piece of fine

material should be cut to the shape of the shirring .Allowing some allowances .Fix

this to the shirred piece on the wrong side by hemming . Stitches should not

show on the right side .
