This is a Pinterest inspired dress. Ok, can anyone relate, have you ever seen something on Pinterest and had to have it, but after clicking on the photo, which should take you to where you can get it, there is NOTHING? Nothing, no online store, no DIY tutorial on how to make it, NOTHING! It should be a crime, except for the fact that it does have its perks. It cause one to actually be creative, and spurs you on to figure it out for yourself. Now a days, I believe, this is very uncommon! So that’s how this dress came about, I wanted it so bad I had to figure out how to make it myself, and I am so happy I did! It is much more satisfying than buying it on-line and way cheaper!
I used cheap $2 a yard fabric from Walmart with vintage lace & glass buttons (from my treasured second hand stash). The dress probably only cost me $5 to make, gotta love that.
I attached inspiring photo from Pinterest, if anyone knows who makes this I would still like to know, it’s an adorable dress!
