Shirred Sundress Done!

Pretty Girl On The Swing

Yes, everyone's saying it's easy and I was tempted. It is indeed really easy and such fun sewing it!

I used Smocked Sundress instructions from my favourite book Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. I asked Kinokuniya to order the boook from the US as I could not find it in any bookstore in Malaysia. One of my most treasured books at the moment.

I used just half yard of fabric (Circle Blossoms In Mint by Dena Designs) for the dress (Hanan is a 2T at the moment). Saved a lot of time as there's minimal cutting. I fell head over heels in love with the elastic thread and finished the dress in just an hour. I used a different fabric for the strap as I've used up the whole half yard for the dress.

This is a definite "must try" if you haven't sewn it before.

Look how happy she is!
