How to Add a Ruffle to the Monday Morning Dress

Hello everybody, Ilse here from @Sewsewilse. I’m glad to be back on the EAM Blog! These days I can’t have enough dresses! Summer is in full swing and nothing is so wonderful to wear loose and flowy dresses.

When I saw the Monday Morning dress I knew it was the perfect base for so many other things. Recently I was constantly thinking about a dress with a ruffle and I had to have a dress with a ruffle. Voila! The Monday Morning dress would be my base!

Hello, gorgeous dress!
In fall I brought some nice fabrics with me from my trip to Madrid and this is one of them. It’s a viscose jersey and has a perfect drape for the ruffle ànd the gathering at the skirt. I love this geometric print so much!
Let me tell you how I made it!

I shortened the skirt with 7 inches and narrowed the skirt with 2 inches.

Then I made a strip of 7 inches wide and doubled the length of the skirt's circumference (bottoms circumference) This way so I could gather the strip on the bottom of the skirt.

Hemming and ready to go!

I already have some new ideas to make with the Monday dress. You too?
