Fun in the Sun{dress}: Oceanside Lace Dress Tutorial

Today I’m over at iCandy sharing my last guest tutorial for a while: The Oceanside Lace Dress.

They are having a fun series called Fun in the Sun{dress}. It just started this week and will be going on for a few more. They have wonderful guest bloggers lined up. Some with tutorials, some just sharing a pretty sun dress they made. They are also having some giveaways and all that good stuff going on.

A trip to the beach

I had to make at least one more dress for me before I start focusing on finishing up the nursery and baby things (I plan on trying to make some diapers, burp cloths, bibs, etc….let’s see how much I can get done ;)

This dress is an easy design and has been done lots before, but I tried to spice it up with the lace flowers. They were cut out of a lace curtain panel I found at a thrift store.

Oceanside is so peaceful

I like how elegant it came out. I hope it inspires you to make a fun summer sundress for yourself!

    You look so amazing! And I really like the idea of cutting the lace flowers out and sticking them on. I’m eyeing up a few pieces of lace in my stash, now… May just have to make something similar for me or the girlies! (or me!)

    OMG! I love this dress! You are so cute! I am going to try make this too, but with straps, (almost 7 months prego), because I am not able to wear anything without straps! L<3VE your blog! Thank you and keep on going with the awesome projects!

    You look amazing! and the dress is fabulous too! Would the pattern be too big on a non pregnant person?

    I would suggest not using quite as much fabric as I did. I think on a nonpregnant person it might be a little too bulky and not as flattering. Just reduce the amount used on the back portion and maybe the amount used to ruffle on the bottom portion.
