A few weeks ago, I vented my frustration about my supposedly original idea for SeeKateSew’s awesome Ruffles Series turning out to already exist in a ready-made pattern.
I had to come up with something new, and after exploring some ideas for minor revisions to the first idea, I decided to just make something completely different.
This very simple ruffled sundress is made out of just 2 rectangular panels of fabric and some ribbon for the shoulder straps. So, the ruffles are not cut separately – they are simply folded from the panels. The ruffles are stitched with elastic thread, so no zipper nor buttons are needed to put the dress on.

PS. I googled around a bit to find out if this second idea perhaps also already existed. I didn’t find anything. If nevertheless, anyone is aware of something extremely similar already existing, please don’t tell me. I wouldn’t be able to handle it. I just wouldn’t.
