Elastic thread is used to create Shirring. Shirring is a decorative gathering with many rows of gathering stitches. Now we mostly hear of shirring done with this type of thread as this creates beautiful gathers rather easily. Elastic thread is wound on the bobbin and then several parallel rows of stitching are done across the fabric. The resultant fabric panel will be beautifully gathered.
