Baby Doll Dress

I made this baby doll summer dress from a silk taffeta fabric & with black bias tape on all edges.

I used my own simple pattern for the bodice & two layers of skirts.  I cut the first skirt on the bias & the circle skirt overlay on the grain.   I then added the top little ruffle all around.

I adore ruffles so I added this ruffle on one side & I made it by taking a piece of fabric and sewing two lines near the top & pulling to gather.  I also cut the fabric on the bias & added the black bias tape. I aslo made the matching hair band.

This is a fun easy summer dress to sew that I wear for date nights!

Sew you later!
