Digging around in my stash I found this:
I used this tutorial: the ubiquitous Shirt Dress
and this pattern: Sweet Dress
For the ruffle I just cut a double length of stripey fabric and ruffled it up using the highest tension and basting stitch. Then I tacked it on. I left the edges raw on purpose because I prefer the unfinished look
I also used the original hem of the dress. Easy peasy.

It's been a gloomy few days so it's difficult to get a proper picture.
I don't know how many shirt dresses I've made but this is the first time I combined patterns and it made me much more confident that it was going to turn out right. Ellie loves her new dress!
This is my first KCWC and I'm learning so much. The Flickr pool is full of crazy inspiration!
I miss my yarn, though...there. I said it. Can't wait to finish my last project so I can get back to my needles and fiber.
