The Irby pattern is an heirloom sundress that can even be smocked with your own smocking design!! It is gathered softly in the front and back and ties on the shoulder. A ruffle and tucks at the hem make a precious statement around the ankle. It features an apron-type overskirt . It is soft, elegant and totally feminine with lots of twirlability built into the skirt. This pattern is relatively quick and easy to make and looks precious made up in soft fabrics such as batiste, pima cottons or lawn. A trendier and more casual version may be made in colorful quilting cottons but will require only minor adjustments,which are included in the pattern.
Destined to become a classic, this dress will look stunning for parties, weddings, portraits or any other occasion!!

Supplies: fabric, matching thread, lace trim, scissors, straight pins, rotary cutter, quilter's ruler and mat (great to have, but not necessary).

This little dress is so sweet and twirl-a-riffiic - your daughter will LOVE it and you will love how easy it is to put together. The pattern is easy to follow and has lots of pictures. I highly recommend it.
