It's a lovely springy day here, so I decided to make a sundress. It's one of those from the fabric that's smocked around the top. I cut off about 10" of fabric at the bottom and hemmed it, and then I used the scraps to make straps. I think it's kind of fun and vintage feeling -- the colors and dots make me think of the circus.



I'd say start to finish it took about 90 minutes.

I love these dresses! I have so many tops that are the exact same, and they are super comfy for summer!

You did a great job on this. The colours are so vibrant and fun, and you look super happy in the pic too Smiley

I love it! I keep meaning to make one of these, but I only seem to find that pre-smocked fabric in pretty ridiculous colors and designs - so where'd you find your fabric? Yours is fab!
