Here's a dress I made Mollie today. A few weeks ago my mom told a friend from church that I've started sewing and she gave me three different jersey baby fabrics! The dress looks a little like a nightgown but I think it looks okay. I wanted to try out a few things I hadn't done before..
I've seen this ruffle technique on a few blogs, and if you know how to gather, it's really easy! You just sew long stitches down both sides of a strip of fabric, gather them on both sides to make the ruffles, pin the strip onto the front of the dress, and topstitch down the center of it.
I also did this "lettuce" edge on the bottom. To do that you zig-zag stitch right on the edge of the hem and stretch the fabric as you sew it.
