This dress was inspired by the many dresses I wore when I was my daughter's age. Spaghetti straps and smocking, remember? I loved those dresses! This dress has that same silhouette, so the pattern was pretty simple to create.
Brocades are embossed with metallic threads giving the fabric just the right amount of shimmer.
I hand stitched a few gemstones and gold beading to the front for a special touch. Matching buttons and bow at back finishes the look perfectly!
Hope you are inspired to try a brocade for your next girls dress project.
Happy sewing! Enjoy.
