Peplum bubble dress, attempt #2 (KCWC days 3-5)

On days three to five of KCWC, I gave the peplum bubble dress a second go. This time, I lengthened  the bodice by 2 centimeters (0.8 inch) and finished the neckline with bias instead of facing. And, most importantly: I used the fabric in which I had been dreaming the dress for a couple of weeks: Nani Iro Fuccra double gauze, from Kicoli's Etsy shop.






 I think it definitely looks better with the longer bodice. In the next weeks, I'll be trying to find some time to draw some patterns for ages 1 to 6.

    1. Bubble + double gauze = perfect match! No matter what pattern you use, bubble dresses or skirts always seem more bubbly in gauze than in regular cotton. I'm looking forward to yours! :-)
