I made this dress earlier this summer, but I just now got around to photographing it. It’s made from a printed chiffon that I bought from Wal-mart. I drafted the pattern using my own measurements. I wanted to experiment with creating a ruffle skirt since I’ve never made one before. I only had 1.5 of a yards of fabric though, which wasn’t enough to make a full gathered skirt; so instead, I sewed the skirt together using elastic thread in order to create the effect of a ruffle. I shirred the waist and the raw edges were finished off using bias tape which was made from the same chiffon fabric. Instead of a zipper for getting in and out of there are buttons going down on the side of the dress. I hope that you like it (:
