I learned the technique for making the single-shell ruffles from the book, ‘The Art of Manipulating Fabric’ by Colette Wolff for some time, it is sort of wonderful textbook of any kind of fabric manipulation.
The blue fabric is double-gauze cotton by Nani IRO. The front of the dress has a single pleat where I sewed a pair of single-shell ruffles. The shape of the dress is kinda loose, I want to be able to layer it with long-sleeves T-shirt and thick leggings for this cold season.
Well, the result looks a bit like little girl’s dress, but then all my dresses look like little girl’s dresses, so that’s okay .
