I'm not crazy about how it turned out- it's TOO ruffly I think. I'm going to redo it, maybe make the ruffles more floppy looking like the J.Crew inspiration shirt. I love all these ruffles on things (have you seen J.Crew or Anthropologie lately??), but maybe I'm not girly enough to wear this stuff? I'm going to keep trying...

I didn't want to use a pattern, so I kind of made it up along the way... the ruffles on the sleeves turned out bigger than I expected. They kind of look like flutter sleeves so I left them. The Boden dress is smocked in the back, something I can't do, so I put in a zipper to make it fit snugly on top. It is a bit of a mess- I'm sure I'll try to redo the zipper when I get motivated.D was actually excited to wear it last night to wedding number one! Often I will make something for her and then she refuses to wear it. I made a little knotted necklace out of glass beads and white ribbon- it looked really cute with the dress. I couldn't get pictures of the whole effect as we were running crazy late :( ... maybe next time she wears it.
