This knock-off dress from Maybe Matilda is a variation on the previous two dresses with a few extra details. For instance, she leaves the gathers in the front and not on the sides so that those of us with hips (yeah, that's me!) don't look super hippy and puffed out like the Michelin man. She even includes pockets in her dress. Since I had sweet Junebug, I looove pockets in my dresses. Seriously--it's something I get excited about!
Leave it to Prudent Baby to set the bar even higher--Jaime created this Modern Prairie dress by tracing an existing one that she liked. Using her technique, you can recreate your favorites, too. I won't lie, I'm still intimidated by the shirring technique.
I have two dresses in the works for Junebug right now, too. The first is the Charlotte dress from Craftiness is not Optional that I'm using for her Easter dress. It's so classically beautiful and it'll be my first invisible zipper. I'm not to that step yet, so wish me luck!
The next is the snappy toddler dress from Prudent Baby. Not only does Jaime make awesome clothing for herself, but her daughter gets to rock some pretty awesome garments, too. I hope the one I make for Junebug is this precious.
Even if you're snowed in somewhere up north, you can bring a little sunshine to your day by making one of these awesome summer dresses in preparation for the season.
Or you could move to Florida. Just sayin'.
