I made this dress for Sienna for the 4th of July. The smocked dress that I made a few months ago was in preparation for this dress. So with that said, if you want to know how I did this dress, follow the instructions below for my first smocked dress. The only difference with this dress is the trim along the bottom. I did that by cutting a piece of elastic to the length of the bottom of the dress. I then cut a piece of the trim fabric to 1 1/2 to twice that length, hemmed it, then sewed it just like you would for the elastic in the dress. (see below instructions).
The flower is a hair-clip that my friend Alyssa made. I just thought it would look cute on there too!
