Smocked Sundress: PASS
Nothing is more comfortable to wear after an indulgent road trip than the Mendocino Sundress from Heather Ross. Our tour of the Upper Midwest involved a significant increase in beer, cheese, and dessert consumption--and a drastic decrease in exercise. My travel dress reeked of campfire smoke and was spattered in sauces by the time I got home. Thank goodness this old favorite was waiting for me!
toddler version is also easy to make and absolutely adorable. Here's one I made for a small friend of mine and a photo of my first favorite sundress. (That one was likely made by my aunt, a talented and prolific home sewer. May her impeccable fabric choices and precision be a beacon to me in dark times.)
