I Fake Made This

     I know I have been really bad about telling you that I’m going to share something I’ve done or made and then taking forever to do it…while I don’t really see that changing too much, I do actually have something to share today!  A few days ago, I showed y’all a picture of my niece in an adorable (if I do say so myself) dress.  The “tutorial” isn’t really difficult at all, as per usual, so let’s just get right to it. 

Scrunchie Dress

You will need
scrunchie fabric (if you’re really industrious you can do this yourself…I bought mine)
coordinating ribbon
coordinating thread

1.  Cut fabric to length and hem.  I rolled the hem over twice so it would look more “done.”
2.  Hem the long (top to bottom) edges.
3.  Fold together longways (right sides in) and stitch together. 
     *I probably used about 1/4 in. seam allowances on all stitching,
4.  Turn right side out and marvel at how cute it already is!
5.  Cut ribbon to desired length (originally I used four pieces – to have to straps tied in bows) and stitch to top edge on the inside.
     *The bow straps didn’t work too well, so we tucked them in and used the front two to make a halter dress.

Done and done!  Della wears this with coordinating leggings because it’s pretty thin (and because they’re just cute).  All told, this project was less than $10 and took less than an hour.  Not bad.

     To make up for my lack of tutorial pictures I thought I’d let you know that this dress is perfect for rockstars too.

P.S.   I jumped on the bandwagon and created a Facebook page for my blog! Click on over and check it out!
