Great dress, and I'm another one who likes a waist-defining frock.

Did you use any tutorials or anything to guide you? I'd like to give it a go!

Cheers!

I love shirred-top dresses. Great fabric! When I realized you can add lace trim to make it a little fancier.

Any advice on getting the cotton fabric to be smoother and NOT remaining crisp for this kind of dress?

I don't know tbh, the cotton I used seems pretty soft anyway after washing. I'm funny when shopping for clothing/fabric for clothing it has to feel right before I buy it so if it was stiff in the shop I would have passed by for something nicer feeling. Sorry I can't be any help  Smiley
