Self-drafted lace dress with a dusky-purple lining. The dress has a back-zipper and is fastened by a single button at the top. Now, I just need somewhere to wear it…

    What a lovely dress! And I agree with all the others out there who say wear it anywhere! I always say that if there’s no occasion to wear something nice, make your own occasion. :-) Be bold and enjoy the attention you get when dresed nicely.

    Wear it to the grocery store! Wear it around the house! Just wear it. It is so beautiful. I will have to make a dress inspired by this. It is so lovely.

    Thank you for all your lovely comments! My boyfriend is going to take me to a nice restaurant this weekend for the dress’ first outing… he doesn’t know that yet, but he will play along I am sure : )

    Beautiful dress! I like every bit of it. I do think you should make a more matching, classy belt to wear with it.

    Beautiful dress. What a genius idea, to use the lighter color lining.

    I want your shoes. Oh, and the dress is great as well. Where oh where did you find that great lace?

      Thank-you. I like those shoes too, but hardly ever wear them, ’cause I am too tall for very high-heels sigh. I found the lace at one of my local fabric stores – it was expensive, but I really wanted it!

    This is very pretty and fits you nicely. I’m thinking though, maybe wait till it’s over 20 degrees to wear it! You must be freezing in that pic!!! I too envy that tiny waist! Move over Scarlett O’Hara!!

      Haha, yes, it was freezing! It should get a lot more wear in a few months.

      Thank you! Yes, I do have a small waist (hence the RTW issues…) but I also had my belt cinched in TIGHT for these photos :D
