Two Dresses in One Day

I keep hearing Mickey Mouse's voice in my head when I say that. He actually said, "Seven in one blow". It's from Mickey and the Beanstalk. Anyway... Here are my dresses.

I got the sundress itch recently, which was weird because it's still too cold here in Seattle to justify wearing them. I need to find some light weight cardigans to match and extend their wearing time. I sort of cheated with these dresses. I bought this fabric pre-shirred and hemmed. I had planned to make a dress like this doing the gathering myself, but then I saw these fabrics that were so pretty and already done that I just bought them. I got one yard of each, washed them, made a seam up the back, and placed ribbon as the straps in the appropriate places. Ta Da! Told you I cheated. I wish all my sewing could be like this now that Mr. Baby is here.

Those are cute! I, too, have succumbed to the pre-shirred fabric--only it was for Holly! Still have to put pics up. I love your idea of using the wide ribbon to hide straps. That was what kept me from making some for me. There's no way I'd be wearing one of itself! Uncomfortable!
Anyway, great job--they look fantastic on you!!! :)

Jenny, I found both of the fabrics at JoAnn.
