Los Angeles, Cal...
I’ve had the Dulcie Dress from Anthropologie on my Pinterest board for the longest time; I finally made my own version! I used tea-dyed lace and chiffon instead of the sweater knit/tulle combination of the original dress. The resulting garment is softer and less scratchy and more flow-y. I used lighter trims than the original, too, since pale pink was all I could find. My own personal preference is for cap sleeves and scoop necks instead of sleeveless and crew neck, so my own version is even more suited to me than the inspiration dress. I love my new frock and can’t wait to wear it to a spring wedding!
