This is my first and only attempt at a bubble hem dress, so it took a lot of trial and error on my part, to get this to turn into something close to what I originally wanted. The original inspiration was by Sass & Bide, but the lacey black (eyelet) fabric was inspired by a Monique Lhuillier number of similar shape. It doesn’t show in the picture too clearly but this is lined in shocking orange, matching the glass beads ring buckle. I wanted to keep it young and fun, as black lace is too serious and safe on its own. The bow at the back was removable with the belt for versatility.
