Women's Shirred Sundress

Linen.
I love linen.

 It reminds me of summertime, sunscreen, floppy hats, listening to Zac Brown Band by the pool, Tommy Bahama clothes, laying on a hammock, breezy morning beach walks in Destin....so many memories. I've been so inspired by Pinterest lately and some drop waist dresses that I have been seeing that I made this shirred drop waisted sundress. And if you really like it...next week it will be in our pattern shop. I think I'm going to make another in a paisley rayon next, then in an eggplant linen with ribbon trim and straps, then in an orange linen with a large wooden bead with halter straps....and then...well, someone will have to stop me!



Want to learn to shir? Be on the lookout for a tutorial on shirring - coming soon!
Once you learn to shir, will be a shirring rock star all summer long!

Thanks, Natalie!! Congratulations on baby #3!! I'm so happy for you and Ross (and Harper and Cliff, of course!)! It can definitely be a maternity dress. Stretchy material - shirred and flowy!

Very cute! This is something you can live in all summer. Excellent job on the shirring. Looks difficult to do, looking forward to your tutorial.
