For the Love of Lace - Part 1 - The Dress


I recently stumbled on a really pretty party dress.

Spaghetti straps, short, flirty A-line skirt, low cut waist...in a matte, brushed, antique gold color.
It is made well...a designer name... and I got a smokin deal at a national discount store.

For me, it is the PERFECT blank canvas.
I decided I wanted to add some lace...sort of sparkly, bridal lace...and really customize it.

I was looking forward to having a small fun project and to having a unique dress for our next special occasion.

In this series of posts I will document my dress embellishing journey!
