Tea Time Party Dress

This dress has been a big seller for me….I’m thankful that most of the world has NO IDEA how ridiculously easy this stuff is! =)
I took a simple, straight-forward a-line shift pattern.
If there isn’t a back seam, i always add one so that I can fully line the dress without any visible seams at the neck and arms.
Before sewing the two layers together, i create the tuxedo ruffle lapel and sew it on to the front. (Just make a rectangle the size you want – add fusible interfacing to the back. Then create a ruffle out of the fabric of your choice, add along the sides of the rectangle)
Then, join your two layers of the dress.
Impress the world!
I prefer to use a cotton/poly blend for this dress to eliminate some wrinkling, but it’s super fabulous in just about anything!
