This is my new favorite dress. I love that it's very vintage looking, yet is very fashionable. A lacy maxi dress....what's not to love?! I fell in love with this dress as I was making it. I'm not a Momma that likes to be all match-y with my daughter, but if I could find that lace I would make myself an identical dress in heartbeat.
The one I used was tiered, but it doesn't have to be. I just like it because it adds fullness which makes it twirly.
I measured from the middle of the lining and marked where it needed to be cut.
It'll look like this on the front side.
I cut 2 rectangles 4" wide and 6" long.
I stitched the straps to the front of the dress.
