Description

This is a sundress I made for a charity auction. I used a simple shirring technique for the dress. The flowers were made by gathering small fabric circles at the center, then sewing each one on individually down the hip and seamline.

I also made a coordinating wrap sweater from a pattern I designed originally to be used for a fleece fabric a few projects back. (Project name: Autumn wrap)

Material Notes

jersey, double knit jersey

    This is striking and the flowers do a great job of merging the two panels
