So I bought these two dresses at Kohl's on their clearance rack for $10 each. I knew they might be a little short once I washed them. They are cotton knit and I loved the style. I actually bought another shirt that has the same elastic gathering in the middle. One washing and they started running a little short. I saw on Make it and Love it where she added on a ruffle and I thought. I can do that. So went to the store and bought material to add to both. So far I have only got the green one done but I have the material to make the other.
I added a 6 inch ruffle on the bottom.
I love this dress. It is my best GO TO dress for summer. It is so comfy and anything that doesn't bind around my ever growing tummy is wonderful. I think I spent maybe $2 or 3 on the additional fabric and with my serger I added this really quick. I just need to switch the thread on my serger to white and then I can finish the orange one before the summer is over.
