Toile Sundress

So I FINALLY got to have some sewing time today and it was HEAVEN! I got a lot done. I made this cute toile sundress for my girlie. It's based on this tutorial from Lil Blue Boo, but I made a bunch of changes.
I made the top section from two pieces so I could put the raw edges of the straps inside for a neater look. I added a ruffle on the bottom. Wanted the edges to fray, so I sewed 1/4" from the two edges to stop the fraying there. Then I basted with my sewing machine, pinned it on the finished edge and stitched two lines down the center. I also made braided straps from tiny strips of fabric. Left the edges raw cause I liked the fraying and the look.
Added a braided fabric loop in the back that the straps go into. You can knot the straps or tie a bow. I love the look and was SO easy to do!
She loves it!
Gotta have a fake smile. At least one!
Back knotted. I'll be making lots of dresses with these straps. I loved making them.
Twirl.

Twirl! I think I got the twirl approval for this dress. Will be wearing it lots this summer!
