Fall Florals

I picked up this dress a while ago and there it sat....waiting.  I have several projects that are patiently tucked away just waiting for motivation, time, and inspiration to transform them into something new.  I loved the floral pattern and color of this dress.  It originally had elastic shirring at the bodice, but it was completely stretched out and formless.  It was also rather long in length.


After redoing the elastic shirring, shortening the length, and adding a fun sleeve detail, I ended up with a dress that I really love for this Fall season!

Thanks so much for the clear simple instructions on shirring with elastic thread. I now have the confidence to try it. And thanks for sharing the sleeve feature. Beautiful dress!

Susan, I love this... the colors, fabric, and the cute detail on the sleeves. May have to try it... I like the bell sleeves, they just don't look cute on me.
