How to Make a Dress with Pre-Smocked Fabric

“I remember when I first saw pre-smocked fabric panels at the fabric store, I thought to myself, “What in the world is that?” The answer is, “It’s the easiest fabric you can purchase to make a quick sundress for yourself or your kids this summer.” A single seam is all it takes to turn a shirred fabric panel into a quick and comfortable sundress. When my Mom made my kids’ dresses from these magic fabric panels a few years ago, my kids wore these dresses every single day. They would skip over my long, time consuming, costly handmade dress creations and beg to wear this pre-smocked dress! And as the saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them!”
I just love seeing little girls in smocked dresses, but I never thought that I, a beginner seamstress, could sew one! Boy, was I wrong. These dresses are so easy to make because they use pre-smocked fabric! And since they’re so easy, you could quickly turn out a bunch of these adorable outfits in a wide array of colors. Have fun!
