Royal Doll Lace Dress

Added Mar 11, 2013

Qld, Australia






I decided to make a dress from my pinterest board and it just so happens that the style of dress is similar to the BurdaStyle 120 dress that I have become completely obsessed with. I have found this pattern to be so easy to modify and change to make some of my favourite outfits to date.

So off I went to the store and the closest fabric I could find was this royal blue, so to match it up I picked a cream lace and some cream and gold buttons. I ended up making the short sleeves as per the BurdaStyle pattern and just matched the lace to fit.

Talk about a girly dress I feel a little bit like a doll but totally worth it! I think its my cutest girliest dress I now own!

The dress I matched is on my blog at:

      Thanks Mary! If funny how you can make 1 pattern in so many different ways. I’m thinking of using this pattern as my bridesmaids dresses!

      I think the pattern would make fab bridesmaid dresses. I agree with you about how 1 pattern can be done so differently with different fabric etc, thats why i love this site xx
