We've all got the little black dress - perfect for everything from a dinner date to a power lunch with the boss. Well, I now give you the Little White Dress - perfect for sitting under a tree and enjoying your favorite romance novel, to a day of bicycle riding and farmer's markets. Ahhh, the dreams of warm spring days!
I will be doing a tutorial on how to make this sweet and dainty dress. All you need is muslin, 1/4" elastic, and flat eyelet lace (I got mine from The Trimming on Etsy, who I had never purchased from before).
She included the little butterfly as an added "thank you" for my purchase. Isn't that sweet? She was also very quick, so I recommend her shop. The trim I purchased is still available here.
- 1 yard of 60" wide white muslin or 1 1/4 yard of 44" wide. For a fancier version, you could also use chambray or voile, but I like to keep things less expensive especially when it's a white garment. You guys know how messy I am!
- About 3 yards of flat white eyelet lace trim - 1 1/4" wide or more, but probably no more than 2" wide - a quick search on Etsy will give you lots of options
- 1/4" elastic - just buy a package of it, chances are you'll need about a yard
This dress is a breeze to make! Easy to cut (just one big rectangle, two straps, and a strap for the top), easy to sew, and comes out just beautifully.
I will be showing you how to make your very own version of this dress in the coming weeks, and one lucky gal will win the one I make in the tutorial! Yes, I will make you your very own Little White Dress to keep or to give to a special lady in your life!!
