Ruffle Fabric - wahoo! This time, a whole dress. It takes longer than the 5 minute skirt, but it's definitely doable in a naptime. And really, blogging this tutorial took longer than actually making the dress.
I went with light pink because I thought ruffles would be perfect for an Easter Dress. This tutorial is zipper and button free! Ruffle fabric is stretchy, so with the V-neck and the stretch in the fabric, no closures are needed.
This took a lot less fabric than I thought - I was able to get 2 dresses out of 1 1/2 yards of fabric (my girls are 4 and 6). I bought fabric to line the top as well - I used the swim/dancewear stuff (found it at JoAnn's) since it's really stretchy, just like the ruffle fabric stuff, so it would stretch over their heads.
Here we go - a tutorial on how to make a ruffle dress. You can do this!
