Well, I was so wrong!!!!
Are sitting down?? I made this dress!!!
I am seriously so excited about this! Winking smile

I saw this tutorial over on
Mommy by Day, Crafter By Night,
& I said to myself I am so doing this!  Yay!

Supplies needed:
pre-smocked fabric
matching ribbon
matching trim
sewing machine, needles & thread

For the full tutorial just pop over to
Mommy by Day, Crafter by Night.
I did change mine up just a little bit.

spring dress straps2 

First up I used matching ribbon for the straps.
It was a lot easier than making straps…since I’m such a beginner.

I also added some matching trim along the bottom of the dress.
