Bubble Dress

I measured out a jumper that fit Annalilia perfectly

Two Pieces in the lining fabric

And two pieces in your main fabric

I added a bell shape and added 2 1/2". The more length the bigger your bubble will be.

I sewed the lining and outside fabric for the front and back together at the neck line and top of the straps

You'll have two pieces each having the lining and outside fabric right sides together attached by the neck

Sew the side seams of the outside and lining fabrics together

It should look something like this

determine which side will be the back, cut down the middle, 3"

Sew a small strip, right sides facing than flip right side out

Slip between the lining and outside fabric than sew around the back slit

Sew the arm holes

Iron a piece of interfacing into the front to add some structure (photo courtesy of Sophia ;-D)

Sew a bias, or large stitch, leaving long strings, pull to gather the fabric

fold in the edge and pin making sure the gathering is spread out evenly, and the side seams line up

Hand Stitch the hem.

Add a button

And take a picture of your teething beauty!

This Website has a pattern for a bubble dress if you'd rather print one off. I'm a "Wing it" kind of gal so I just made my own. Enjoy!
