I use this beautiful fabric which looks like a Monet painting to make a ruffle front dress.

The style has raised waist, flared skirt and small sleeve. I use a metal zipper in orange at the back. The entire dress in lined. An insert is at the front and the ruffles run from the front to around the opening at the back.

I just love it! I wear the look to church, hence I styled it also with my hat. Thanks for looking :-)

Material Notes

2 1/2 yds seersucker/crepe

    Kisses, If I may say, I think this is one of your best projects. Lovely fabric and shows your figure beautifully. I love the front ruffle, too. Did you use a particular pattern or is it self drafted?

    Very nice dress. Both the colours and the silhouette flatter you and the balance of the skirt and bodice is great.

    Intriguing neckline, ruffles and insert. Also a fan of the fabric print you selected for the dress!
