So, it looks a little silly with no girl in it, but once again I worked til the stroke of midnight and my peanut is fast asleep. This dress has some major flaws, and I guess you could call it a failure for that reason (ie: I got lazy and used a sharpie instead of a fabric pen - then I messed up my pattern and you can see it through the fabric...ugh), but this blog is not about perfectly polished finished projects....it's about the skills!! And I am so very happy that I now know how to make this dress. I followed the tutorial over at made (I love this blog and I'm so inspired by Dana), where you can find a ton of variations. This time I tried the shirred version with my best friend the elastic thread. I'm excited to make a million more!
