I am 10 and my sister is 2. Shirred top dresses always make me think of my childhood. I grew up in the Snowy Mountains, where summer usually lasted about ohhhh a week! So summer dresses were not plentiful in my wardrobe. My aunt (who lives in Queensland) sent me a summer dress every christmas, and this is one she made for me - I loved this dress!
The shirred dress idea fitted in perfectly this week, as I had about one hour spare to sew (between school cross country events, getting organised to go away, hairdresser etc,etc). I found this piece of fabric which had all the work done, all I had to do is one seam! Not much of a contribution I know, but some weeks have got to be easy!
Terrible photo as well, taken very early on Thursday morning in between running around the house doing last minute stuff - sorry!
