froggy fake smock dress

Added Jun 20, 2008

by saxsilverain

Espoo, Finland






made using the tutorial “The Eight Dollar Dress” by KBang :)

it was very easy to make, just that i had to work extra hard to streeeetttccchhh the rubberbands, as i think i measured wrong & made it too small :p still managed to finish it in around 4 hours though, and when i wear it, it’s still comfy! phew!

i put some clip (click?)-buttons on the front & back side of the dress so i can attach some straps (otherwise when i wear it as a dress, it’ll just slide down since i’m practically flat-chested :p).

when i’m wearing it as a skirt, i like putting on belt on my waist, so it’ll look like some 50’s styled skirt :)

Material Notes

50% cotton, 50% polyester fabric, which is, again, meant for curtains





KBang, for her great & easy to follow tutorial!

    That’s really beautiful. I thought it was a cute dress when I clicked on it, and was stunned to see what a great skirt it makes, too!
