The first dress!
Here's the dress, made of a poly cotton polka dot my mom has had since the '80's, and a nice lightweight navy cotton voile I got on clearance at JoAnn a while ago. It is very hard to find cute tube dress patterns, and I'm not even really happy with the one I used here if I hadn't done the shirring. I used this pattern:
I changed the top by cutting out the lining of the bodice pieces, and then using rectangles of the fashion fabric in the right shape to overlay over, creating the semi-sheer poufy top. I'm not sure I love it on. I also added a waistband. The skirt is two layers of the ivory/navy polka dot, cut in rectangles.
