Party dress with lace top

Added Jan 14, 2009

Berkeley, Califo...






I made this dress for my birthday party in December. I got the fabric super cheap at a discount fabric store, though I think the dress would have been better if I had used a less plain fabric for the solid portion. The back lace has a slit down the middle which is closed at the top by a vintage black button from a thrift store. The pattern was my own monster created from a few old patterns I had already.
I made custom mini party hats to fit the personalities of each of my guests. I made my party hat to match my dress. Boys got mini top hats and girls got mini princess hats.

Material Notes

Green lace, green cotton, elastic, one black vintage button.

    But it looks the prettiest teal/blue colour on my computer, not green…

    I also find your fabric combination very interesting, and the color is great!
