I bought this lovely blue sequin lace to make something for a New Year’s Eve party and came up this dress with a removable skirt for dancing. By using a halter top and a wide belt I was able to get this work with only one yard of the expensive lace – maybe the one benefit to being short ;)

      Thanks! I figured I would get more wear out of the dress by making a short version w/ a long attachment.

    This combo looks really nice for party with dancing! Curious as to how you attatched black band to the lace skirt. Nice work, great with the blue shoes…

      Thanks! The band is just a wide piece of dark blue elastic that I sewed into a belt and the skirt is just sewn directly onto the belt.

    Stunning dress and you look fabulous. What a clever idea, both dress versions look great and you could always pair the lace skirt with a different top for another look x

      Thanks! I’ll have to add more photos of the skirt paired with other things.
