By layering ruffles you can create some really soft and bitter sweet designs to wear! They have alot of fun movement and life! Colors and patterns are a great way to make this little number more personal to your style!
I used for the cupcake dress a soft organic cotton in white and grey.
But I also have made custom colors in purple and pinks,red and blacks but my personal favorit I’ve made is my organic jersey floral print design in blue! I love th feel adn look of jersey and with ruffles it’s even softer!!
The blue jersey ruffle dress is for sale online at my etsy.com shop!! Check it out! Custom orders are always avalible!!

    I can’t wait to see it, your design is fun, it reminds me of a flapper dress.

      I did yes, on the organic cotton one, cotton will fold itself over, and the jersey one won’t fry due to the make of the material, however both where made befor I had the proper machine to either serge or hem them! I was thinking of making one with a none-stretch light weight cotton and have a zipper up the back,hemmed adn much more finished. When I do I’ll post some pics!! :)
