So every summer I bust out my sewing machine and make E a top or a dress. I've gotten progressively better- my first dress I sewed for E two years ago can only be classified as a disaster. No kidding, it was that bad. This year I found some cute red and white fabric on sale (.90 for 2 yards!) and decided it was time to make E her latest ensemble.
Instead of using a pattern, I decided to be inspired by a skirt E's grandma made for her. I cut and sewed a few rectangles together, copied the top from another dress pattern and sewed it up. E added her opinion on the alternating fabric. It ended up like this:
So there you go! A one of kind ruffle dress for my one of a kind E!
