English Countryside Dress, Another Modcloth-opy

Added Jun 19, 2010

Portland, Oregon...






I saw this dress on Modcloth and loved it, but it looked pretty easy to re-create. So I used the Anda pattern and some great fabric, then added some lace doilies I bought off Etsy. Easy, quick, comfy and cute! My favorite.
The dress looks like something you’d wear to an art museum, a vintage shop, or yes, in the English countryside.
The hat is one I got for $5 at Urban Outfitters—I like to wear it every chance I can. It just so happened that it looked great with the dress!

Material Notes

Cotton Bamboo blend from Bolt, lace doilies from Etsy. The white tie is from an old shirt.




Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual, Romantic, Victorian

    Doilies are a brilliant idea! The whole ensemble is adorable.

    Very cute! I have a couple of lace doilies I bought at the thrift store and have yet to use. I hadn’t seen that dress but I was planning on putting them on the shoulders – it just seems like the right place.

    Your whole outfit is amazing! Great job at re-creating the Modcloth dress. I love the sage green color, drawstring waist and the doilies!
