For those of you who have a sewing machine and are brave enough to experiment with your own pattern making, this dress is so. awesome. Jessica at Sweetie Pie Bakery combined the top of a store-bought Simplicity pattern with a web-found tutorial to sew flounces on a skirt and viola! This Modcloth knockoff design was born. I’m really loving the flounces – I want to make a flouncy skirt for my daughter now!
