Stripes.Ruffles.Bows oh my! I really love this dress. Very comfortable. I wore it when I went out for my birthday. It kind of reminds me of a cake. I made a boat neck t-shirt dress and sewed the stripes on and hand-sewed on bows. The bottom is 2 rows of ruffles. I hand sewed the hem on the sleeves. The neckline is a ruffled peterpan collar with a bow. The neckline is reinforced with an added interfaced piece. On the front and back I sewed loose pleats. I added inseam pockets under one of the stripes. I made a black braided belt with it for when I wear it in the summer. It didn’t turn out exactly like I wanted it to, but I still love it. i did not use a pattern for this dress.
