What's more Boho than honest-to-gosh tye-dyed fabric!
I found this fabric at a retro store, and I knew I had to have it.
I loved the soft colors with the radiant white starbursts.
Looking through my box of laces from my great grandmother, I found this starburst lace. I think this fabric and lace were meant to be together.... thanks, Great-Grandma Kelly.
My granddaughter is so slender that I used a elastic gathered band in the back of the sundress so it would fit her better. I wish that I could find the type of elastic that you can sew multiple row of stitching through, and it doesn't loose it's ability to retract.
But, I think this is a viable solution to the problem.
I like to gather fabric like this.
|First, using your longest stitch, sew 2 rows of stitching. One at 3/8 inch and one at 6/8 inch.|
|Pull the ends of the threads that came from the bobbin. With your fingers move the gathers down the fabric.|
