I lost my ruffles!!!

Don't hate me. I made a pretty drastic change to the ruffled dress I asked for advice on (and for which I received lovely comments and great advice). I think you will be understanding. I was having some trouble completing the dress because frankly it was not terribly flattering. That many ruffles on my top heavy frame was a silly idea. Something had to be done.

I removed all the ruffles.

Well, I kept a few for the one pocket, centered directly on the side seam.
So that I can wear the dress backwards or forwards.
I think I like it better backwards! (Note to self: make more low-back clothes.) My only hesitation is the candy-striper feel of it. I spent so much time doing those ruffles, cutting bias strips, hemming and gathering. But they had to go and I'm okay with that. I am sort of embarrassed however that I shared the dress, received very lovely comments (thank you!) and then completely changed it. Anyone need some slightly used ruffles?


  1. Don't be embarrassed. That is the whole idea behind designing - figuring out what will work and what doesn't. I think this worked out great for you. And I agree, I like it better backwards too!

  2. Gorgeous! I love what you did with it. And low backs are always so pretty.

  3. It looks lovely! I like the pocket and the low back. So pretty!

  4. how I love this one !
    congratulations !
