Description

Found some wacky fabric from a local discount store and decided to try my hand at this pattern-less tutorial. Dress came out a bit big and the shirring (first time shirring) wasn’t QUITE what i wanted but great for a first time.

This dress really doesn’t fit anywhere in my wardrobe but I love how wild it is.

Material Notes

cheap cotton, elastic thread, bias tape

    i think it’s very fun! it doesn’t need to fit in your wardrobe because it stands on its own :)
