My friend was getting rid of this top, and I found a 3-yard roll of the wide crocheted lace at Joann's for $1, so the whole thing cost me less than fifty cents.
All I did was put the top on my kiddo, figure out where to attach the straps and how long to make them, and then I actually did cut four little squares of knit fabric and sewed them over the lace on the inside of the dress, in case it was itchy--but that last part is totally optional.
She loves this dress, because it's "long long to the floor," which is her favorite thing.
|Those curls with the headband are just killing me!|
Sorry you can't see how cute those shoes are (and perfect with the dress)--they are natural-colored linen espadrilles with a flower cut from the same fabric that I got at Old Navy on super clearance ages ago that finally fit. I have since quit buying ahead for this girl, because she's so dang picky now that I have no idea what she'll want to wear a year from now, but I got lucky with these ones. Oh! I might have a picture still from when I bought them:
|Yup! That's them! And my final price on these babies was $1.18.|
Anyway, she had fun being sassy for my pictures in her boho getup, then we went to the grocery store and she was admired by many. This outfit is a win.
