New Dress for Mommy- a Knock-Off

A few weeks ago Morgan, my BFF/Lil Sister/Maid of get the picture.... told me about this great little dress designer, Judith March, who has some adorable dresses. After looking at her Website I was in LOVE with her dresses! They are available nationwide, but I wanted to try to make one for myself. She uses bright colors and unique necklines to really make a statement, without being too over the top.

Here are some of the dresses I love...

I saw this dress and decided I wanted to make something similar...

I had some teal fabric and paisley ribbon laying around in my craft room and knew that it would be perfect.

Here is the finished product

The shirring in the back makes it sooo comfortable, and with a tie on the neck, I don't have to worry about tiny hands pulling my dress down!

Every picture looks cuter with a baby in it!

Maybe one day I'll break down and buy a real one, but for now I'm in love with my new dress!


  1. very lovely, I love the way it came out!

  8. Ok I have a judith march dress from last year and I have been staring at it thinking I could do a knock off too! How did you do the shirring in just the back? Did you sew in a separate panel? Or did you just make the back piece twice as long as the front and shir it? Any help would be appreciated!
