White Eyelet Graduation Dress by taylor-of-the-phunk White Eyelet Graduation Dress by taylor-of-the-phunk
This is my graduation dress. Sadly nobody really got to see it because of how I had a robe on over, but oh well!

The bodice is based on Simplicity 4070. I cut the back panel larger and as one piece for the smocking. I did the pintucks before cutting the front, and that worked out quite well. The whole thing is lined in muslin, and there are pockets which are accidentally tiny. (I've never made pockets before!)

So that's about it, it's a pretty simple dress, really. I hope to be able to wear it again lots of times!

Yes I did! It's much easier than you'd think, it's simply lots of parallel rows of stitching with normal thread in the needle and elastic thread in the bobbin. I learned it from an internet tutorial, I'm sure you could find one!

And thank you! :)
