A daytime lacy dress!

Welcome to Adventures with Sweetie Pie Bakery!
Today Jessi shares an amazingly cute ModCloth-inspired dress she made for a friend's bridal shower.  Soooo cute... I want one!  Check it out...

I'm so very excited to share this dress with you! It is by far my most favorite dress I've sewn so far!

I'm pretty confident in sewing garments for myself now. Meaning, I'll look at a dress I like and analyze things differently, rather than just whether I can, or should, afford it. I look at the price, then the materials, then the construction, and decide how much time and money it would cost me to make the garment.

When I saw this particular dress at ModCloth, I was all set out to buy it, and then ended up making it! Click on over to read more and find out how to make your own!

Thanks, Jessi!
That would also be cute with a soft pink or peach lining... or with a tiny shrug cardi!


  1. Oh how cute!!! Thanks so much for sharing!! :)

  2. I used that exact lacy fabric on my wedding dress! And it did actually have a pink underlay, which looked lovely. (Some pictures here:

  3. That is so adorable! I need to start sewing so I can make things like this!!!
