This dress is flattering to any figure and it is a “ONE SIZE” fits all! Well, it will fit you if you are a size small, medium or large. Basically the waist circumference is 38", so if you can pull it over you head, it will fit! ;)

In this picture the the dress is layered over a nude color slip. This dress will need a belt to cinch in the waist and to also cover the waist seam. You can add any belt you have or make one as I did in this picture. The belt was made out of velvet ribbon. You can see the instructions in “the valentines top” post.

Material Notes


1.) 3 1/2 yards of lace fabric (preferably with scalloped edge)
2.) Velvet ribbon for belt (optional)

Duration: Approximately 4+ hours
Sewing Level: Beginner to Intermediate

    The nude slip color makes it look very daring! I love versatility, you can mix it up with a variety of colors underneath. I like it!

    It has a bit of a vintage feel to it. Wearing with a nice belt and a cute slip would make it a lot more wearable.
