The Dreamy Beach Dress

I envisioned this dress to be perfect for a slightly breezy day, frolicking around the sandy beach.

However, we don't have much of a beach around these rocky mountains, so you will have to use your imagination like I did.


Wouldn't that picture be perfect with an ocean in the background?

This dress was constructed much like my Party in the Back dress, only with ruffles all over.  I drew out a pattern for a basic pillowcase dress, cut it out with some knit, then sewed on waves of knit ruffles. 
The neckline was formed by braiding 3 strips of white knit and threading it through the casing in the dress. 

She just loves it!  And I love it on her.

So dreamy.
Now I need a trip to California to make it beachy.

Baby is up next!!

Another great style. I do know if you can't go to the beach for awhile go and take pictures in a wheat feild. You get the fun wind effect in those pictures and it will also make the dress stand out even more. But that dress is already amazing I think it would be impossible to make it look any better.
