How do I attach shirred material to regular stretch material? Answered

I have a pre-shirred material that I want to use for the bust part of the dress, and a different stretch material that I would like to use for the bottom portion of the dress.  What is the easiest and best way to attach the two?

If the stretch material isn't going to be in a position to be stretched, just treat it like you would any non-stretch material.

If it's in a position where it will be stretched, then you'll have to un-shirr some of the pre-shirred material and re-shirr it to the stretch material to allow the stretch material to work or it'll be in a bind.
