Another floral dress

Added Jun 4, 2010

Another dress with floral fabric. The ruffled collar is inspired by this ruffled top that Lia made for her daughter. I think it’s very cute so I shamelessly stole the idea from the little girl’s dress. Thank you Lia! The neckline and armholes are finished with binding strips from the same fabric, then I added rows of shirring around the waist. It also has a pair of hidden pockets on side seams.

    this is so cute! did you use the tara pattern for this and just modified the neckline? How do you sew an elastic waistband in a dress? sorry for the questions ; ]

      I didn’ t use Tara pattern for this dress. The pattern started as a simple, rather A-line shaped dress, it was only two pieces: front and back. The ruffled collar was a long strip of fabric, gathered on one side. I used elastic thread on the bobbin to sew the rows of shirring on waist :)

    Oh, no! you stole my favorite little model’s dress design. Great job though. Let me compliment you on your great smile. Wow! you look beautiful and happy. A smile is the best accessory a person can wear.
