Feeling Loopy Dress Virtual Workshop


Fitted at the bodice, full at the hem, this sweet little collection of fluffy-ruffly goodness is sure to fill those whimsical wardrobe dreams.

You can make this pocket-loopy-layer dress your own by selecting your combination of back ties versus invisible zipper and narrow straps versus wide fabric ribbons that tie in a bow. Spinning is highly recommended while wearing the finished gathered garments. May result in feeling loopy.
