One Yard Wonder: Strapless Ruffle Maxi Dress

Make #1

So here's the scoop on this dress.

My sister and I ventured to the FIDM Scholarship store in Downtown, LA during her first visit here.  She found this lovely fabric and we purchased 4 yards of it (intending to split it 2 yards each).  However, after she selected the dress she wanted me to make her, I realized that I would have about 1 yard left to make something for myself.

A couple of days later, I ventured to FIDM to get 2 more yards of the fabric since making a dress out of 1 yard would be a challenge if at all possible.  So I returned to the scholarship store just in time to see the girl in line in front of me holding the remaining fabric (which turns out was 2 yards...what are the chances?!!).

I was hoping there would be fabric left over after her purchase since as I was next in line.  Instead, I watched as she purchased all of the remaining fabric! I literally missed getting the extra fabric by minutes (minutes probably lost figuring out parking but I digress).  Can you believe the irony?

But anywho, I decided to work with the remaining fabric and Voila!
