Cream Eyelet Dress

Added Apr 4, 2011

by melonhead

Roanoke, Indiana...






I made this gown the other day for this photo shoot. It’s made out of a cream eyelet lace that I got for $1 a yard! You can’t really tell in the photos, but in the front and back it has these almost wedge type things that make the skirt full-looking, (sorry I don’t know what they’re called). I’m pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I hope you like it. :)

Material Notes

Lace. elastic thread.




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Bohemian, Romantic, Victorian, Vintage

    Very lovely and simply romantic. I’d love to see a closer shot of the back if you have one. A bit much to ask maybe after you’ve posted such gorgeous photos! :-)

      Aw thank you!! No problem, I just posted a photo of the back. You’ll have to excuse the little black specks all over the back…I should have been a little more careful on the photo shoot. Haha. :)

    Entrancing and lovely as always! Your photos are truly works of art, and your dress is too. As for the $1 a yard fabric — HIGH FIVE! Nothin’ better than a deal on good fabric.
