Floral Ruffles

So while working feverishly over the last few days, I finished another dress and wore it to church today.

I tried some shirring on the back, it does save on having to use a zipper.  It did come out a little off center, I don’t think it is that noticeable.  Still, I do think I have improved at it and at dressmaking in general.  The only other thing I goofed at was making the skirt too long, but maybe that’s just a personal preference.
