Another new dress! I’ve been wanting to make this one for a while, but it took a bit of time to get everything into place to start. I picked out over 30 fabrics, chopped ‘em into little squares, and gathered them into huge tiers of rainbow-ordered loveliness. Then I tried out smocking/shirring for the first time on the bodice, and it went so smoothly! I was very pleased.
Lyra spotted it on the dress form before it was even finished, and she absolutely loves it. I think it may be her favorite dress ever. Sometimes it becomes necessary to stop her twirling, before she falls over in a dizzy stupor.
The listing is up in the shop.
Update: A PDF tutorial is now available here!
