Floral Sundress

I finished another smocked sundress yesterday for Katie Anne... it is a pink, blue, and green one with blue ribbon ties. I must confess that this fabric is pre-smocked with elastic thread, so these two dresses have been so super simple to make! You can make one in literally under an hour. Now that I've studied how the elastic thread is used to gather the fabric, I think I can try to do it myself... but that's a project for after the Easter dress is completed. Here's some modeling shots.Checking herself out in the mirror

I made one for a doll from the leftover fabric, too ... but again, we don't have a doll that's really thin enough for it. So, I forced KA's bear into it (which was actually a bear Saunders gave me when we were dating), and the poor thing's stuffed into it! But, that was just for me to see how it worked... Emma had two Groovy Girls, and I think they'll be perfect for these dresses, so maybe she'll get one for her birthday!

I know I did, Vanessa... but I was feeling guilty about it. :) I'm not a good liar!
