Learn to Sew The Cute
Summer Sun Dress Look
This gorgeous, trendy dress was
featured in our "Every Style Has a Common Thread" advertisement to
represent a Valley Girl look. It was inspired by characters like Elle
Woods from Legally
Cher from Clueless.
The dress calls for a technique known as smocking, which uses an
elastic bobbin to create a ruffled, comfortable, and form-fitting
bodice. The entire dress can be made with only the instructions below
with no patterns, and in addition to smocking, you will learn and hone
techniques such as gathering and seam finishing. Top off this dress
with a floppy hat and sun glasses for summer fun. Please read ALL the
directions first before beginning your sundress. Modeling the look are
our two students, Nicole and Sophia.
