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.
