This dress was made from seersucker fabric I bought at JoAnn Fabric's. I started by making the skirt piece long enough to wrap around my waist twice then I ruffled it and attached it to a wide waistband which closed in the back with two buttons. The top piece was a trapezoid shape. I ruffled the top and the bottom then I attached the bottom to the waist band and the top to the collar piece that tied in the back. This was one of my more complicated dresses, but I love all of the gathering and the summery look it has!
