sailboatbubbleAlida from Alida Makes shows how to make this cute bubble sundress.  It has a paper bag bodice and contrast straps.  The fit is super flexible.  It fits her 4-year-old daughter as a dress, and her 7-year-old as a tunic.  (I’m all about getting the most wear out of a handmade dress!!)  Her tutorial is part of the 30 Days of Sundresses series hosted by Melly Sews.  Go to her tutorial.

    “Paper Bag” refers to a style of waistband that has a small ruffle at the top. Here’s a Google image search to illustrate:

    The bodice on her dress uses the same technique, so I referred to it as a “paper bag bodice”. –Anne
