I found this tablecloth at the thrift store for $2.99.
You cant buy that kind of lace yardage for that!
It had a slight stretch to it too! What a score!
I had this off white very thin sweatshirt material
I purchased from an estate sale for $2.00.
I traced a t-shirt pattern and extended it
to create an A line dress.
I cut the tablecloth in the same shape,
but I made it slightly larger. Sally the cat could not get enough! She loved it just the way it was.
I sandwiched the two pieces of lace
between the off white fabric,
pinned and stitched all four layers together.
I sewed the sides of the knit separately from the lace.
The only place the two layers were attached were the shoulders and the neck.
I stitched the neck together with a
tightly spaced zig-zag stitch.
Aside from the shoulders and neck,
I sewed and treated them as separate
dresses when I hemmed it up!
Not bad for $4.99 and made by ME!
This was the perfect wearable creation for
my Sister-In Law's
Winter White Girls (after)Christmas party!
A bit of white sparkle in the make-up was a good touch.
My bangs are too long, so I pinned them back.
The guys went out too! Quick selfie with the hubs!
Why is this stuff soooooo good!????
I had a blast with these gorgeous gals!
See you next time!
