Here is a basic dress for Summer with a little twist.  Horizontal stripes for the dress bodice.  Not only is it unexpected, it also adds some fun.  And what could be more fun than smocked “Kiawah Crabs” by Laura Jenkins Thompson?  I adapted pattern #146 by lowering the neckline, leaving off the sleeves and lengthening the bodice.  The loose fit along with fun fabric and smocking made it a favorite right away.
