Spring Dress

A week or two ago, I mentioned a fun new blog I'm reading called Grace Violet. I loved these dresses she made, so I went on a search for some similar fabric. We are limited to a very small JoAnn fabric (We just lost our WalMart fabric department.), so this is the fabric I found there.

I am a very inexperienced sewer and have had many failed sewing attempts. This looked so easy...I was sure I could do it.

Well, it wasn't as easy as I thought (especially since my mom suggested some "extras" to make the dress a bit nicer), but it did turn out! This morning I finished it, but I did sew the straps on backwards - seam side out! (I have some spatial processing issues!)

Here is the finished product! It even fits her!

I enjoyed this experience enough that I would like to try another dress like this for my daughter, maybe for Easter, and/or a skirt for me. Where can I find this kind of pre-gathered fabric online? I have searched and searched to no avail. Leave me a comment if you can help!
