I wanted to make a basic summery dress. I ended up basing most of it on the Bambi pattern. I tried adding more boob coverage to the top, and changed the strap style. I started with a much fuller skirt, but it looked funny so I just used the skirt shape of the Bambi. Unfortunately it came out a bit short, I’m thinking about adding a ruffle or something to the bottom. On the plus side, this is my second try at smocking and I’m kind of in love with it now!
