...but I am NOT reading her entire blog right now because I am sewing!!! I am working with ruffled fabric for the very first time.
|Pretty cool, huh? This fabric did not come from the website above, but from a store in the Orlando area. We love the colors.|
I wanted to do Earthgirl a dress kind of like this one, only big girl size. But she wanted something more along the lines of a ruffle-skirted sundress like her friend's dressy cream-colored sundress. So we borrowed the dressy sundress (actually, we borrowed her little sister's almost-identical dress) and I am creating something similar from looking at that dress and one of our favorite patterns.
...but first, before I cut into the not-so-inexpensive chifffon-y stuff we got for the bodice, I am making a muslin out of some cotton - it will be a sundress top.
...and there is shirring involved in the back.
I am sew crazy.
