|Pink Dress with Crystals|
This second dress, has been tickling at the back of my mind since making the first dress. My friend had raved about lined dresses she picked up somewhere - made in China and she was so impressed that they were lined. Well since I don't have a serger each edge is double stitched anyway, so I figured aside from cutting the lining material it's the same amount of work lined or unlined. She had also commented on dresses with multiple tiers of ruffles and how they can be such a pain. My mind told me everything is gathered at once, so it is mildly more work but not hair pulling. Hence this dress is lined on the bodice and has three tiers of ruffles. I did not line the skirts because that would have created lots of extra bulk and I was concerned about how warm something like this would be. When I was all finished a bit of sparkly ribbon caught my eye and I stitched it on with a little bow. I adore this dress. I plan to offer it to my friend and if she doesn't want it I will be selling it online. The ribbon is iridescent so it is worth clicking on to see in more detail.
