Saturday Style: Handmade White Lace Dress

White Lace Handmade Dress

I think one of my favorite looks is a white dress in the summer.  Clearly these photos of me were taken before my skin saw the light of the sun because I'm so pale- slowing changing that fact as the summer goes on- but nevertheless I love white! I made this dress a couple years ago to wear to events that were happening when my brother was graduating high school and I still love it. I cut the sleeves so they would be elbow length (one of my favorite sleeve lengths) and the dress is just a simple shift with diagonal darts. What really makes it unique is that I made it with cotton lace that has a scalloped border.

Finding fabrics that have natural edging work so well for creating skirts and dresses and save you the step of having to hem them! yay! The brown shoes I found at a local discount store called 1/2 of 1/2 and the necklace I purchased on the girls trip to Savannah GA last summer.  I love how summer dressing can be so simple, just a dress shoes and a necklace and you're done!
