Floral Green Ruffle Dress

Make #13 
Ruffles Galore! Anything with a ruffle on it is generally good in my book. Ruffles are so feminine and fun! 


When I was making this dress, I thought it was a little plain and tried to think of some ways to jazz it up a bit. I figured what better way then adding some ruffles. So I added a ruffled hem to the bottom of the dress and later decided to do the same to the back neckline of the dress. Turns out it was a great idea! 
What do you think of ruffles? Do you find that they can be a great addition to most pieces? Do weigh in. 
P.S. Thanks to my lil sis, Melissa, for being such an awesome photographer. I am very thankful to her for sharing her awesome talents! Thanks girlie! ;)

  1. Your new creation is utterly fabulous!
    I'm especially enamored with back of this dress; it showcases the back in a sophisticated and yet playful way.
    It's actually quite flirty! ; - )

  7. First and foremost, you are very talented! Found your blog via tumblr. Now, I'm following it. :o)

    Anywho, great dress. I love the ruffles. And not many people can pull off white tights without it looking childish. But it looks great with the dress.

    1. Oh Thanks. You really should do that. It forces to get your sewing projects done because you have a deadline. I used to have so many unfinished sewing projects too. I hope you give it a shot.
