Longsleeve Lace Print Dress

Longsleeve Lace Print Dress

DIY long sleeve brocade print dress
I was in Orlando attending a food blogger conference and decided to whip this up before cocktail hour. I had a yard of this stretch knit fabric with a lace print and even some clear sequins that bounce the light from Joanne’s Fabric that was $12.99 a yard but had a 40% off coupon knocking that down to $7.79.
deciding on zipper length
It was such a quick project – maybe 20 mins that I wanted to add something to it. I tried the look with different lengths of zippers but a text poll to my girlfriends the verdict was no zipper. I agreed with them but what could I do to make it more customized? I bought some prepackaged grey/black chain and made a little shoulder detail that I love.

    Very impressive. Have you ever considered other alternative housing like cob or strawbale? How about Permaculture and Aquaponics as a means to total self-sufficiency?

    Look forward to your thoughts.

  9. Hi Kristie, my passion is art, interior design and architecture too but i must say that you make the renaissance artists look like amateurs to how you materialize your ideas and visions.

    I am from the Philippines and currently in New York for further studies and i would like to ask if you have ever thought of constructing living spaces in Asia for business or personal uses, if so, my facilities and resources are at your disposal. (in the slight and almost impossible chance that you need it, or need help from others. :) )

    And may i also say that you have the most beautiful hands and smile that i have ever seen. (everything about you is perfect, in every way actually. And why the Gods made you that way is a total mystery, if nothing to else but to prove that women can really do everything men can do, even better. And beautifully so. :) And i believe you’re a shining testament to that but anyway..) Sorry can’t help but say it. haha.

    Anyway, i hope to see more of your creations! More power and always take good care of yourself! :)
