Strapless Ruffle Dress

Not all projects turn out as they were intended. This dress was originally supposed to be a one shoulder ruffle dress, but when you don't use a pattern (like Devon and I don't) then you have to work with your mistakes! This is how I arrived at the strapless version, which I think turned out pretty cute anyway. There is an elastic band around the waist, around the top of the bust line, and in the back below the rectangle of fabric that goes across. The material has no "give" to it which is the reason that either elastic, a zipper, or buttons had to be used. The fabric is from JoAnns, as usual ;)
