Smocked Sundress - A Favorite
Yesterday I revisited the smocked sundress pattern from Heather Ross. I love these dresses so much. They are so perfect for the summer. Easy on & off. They wash & wear really well & they are super, super comfy & cute!
I picked up this lightweight cotton floral fabric from Joanns during a 60% off sale. I think it was a juvenile apparel fabric. Because it was a bit thin & I didn't want to worry about panties showing through, I lined it with a thrifted lightweight cotton in aqua blue. I already had the elastic thread on hand & so I think this dress cost me around $4.00.
These dresses are super easy to make & look so awesome. The elastic thread is really fun & easy to use. You should make one for your little girl. Thread is 50% off at Joanns starting tomorrow. Why not grab some elastic thread & make one this weekend?!
