We're going Wakiki for "staycation" this Labor's Day weekend.
I wanted a cute summer dress for this occasion.
One of the fabrics I bought from http://www.fabric.com/ was turquoise blue stripe knit.
I decided to make shirred summer dress, using Threadbanger blog.
Considering how cute it is, it's soooo easy.
It's basically a rectangular fabric with rows of stitches using the elastic thread in the bobbin.
I originally wanted to make a maxi dress.
I bought 1 1/2yd, and it would've been enough if I was to cut it along the salvage.
But I forgot that this is stripe, and I HAVE TO cut it against the salvage if I wanted the horizontal stripe.
It barely made it to knee length, so I used the extra material to make a gathered ruffle.
Ready for the beach! :)
