I love this Amy Butler fabric I picked up on a girl's trip to the L.A. fashion district a couple months ago. My only regret is that I didn't have enough for me! To learn how to make this tank top dress click HERE.

I bought this dress at Target for $6 and wanted to dress it up a little.
So I cut off an 8 inch strip of this black lace that I had.
Then I gathered it down the center.

Taylor is the little cutie on the right, and I'll show today how I made her dress. Below I had a yard of fabric that I cut at a slight angle on both side and then matched the right sides and sewed them together. Below you can see what it looks like when I turned it back right sides out. I have a surger so I surged the top and bottom to leave a finished edge.
Next I turned over the top about an inch and then sewed all the way around and left a 1 inch opening and inserted elastic with a safety pin on one end. I used the pin so that I could pull it along through to the other side. Once I had the desired stretch I closed the opening. Then I sewed some straps using some blue velvet ribbon. I also hemmed up the bottom edge.
|Next, I took some black lace and sewed the edge of it to the wrong side of the elastic edge that I just made.|

I bought this fabric from the fashion district in L.A. I finally sat down yesterday to make something out of it. I'll post how I made them tomorrow. I finished making them this morning so that they could wear them to church. I think I might shorten Tori's ruffles (the one on the left) or make it two layers. Tori and I were just laughing because she said she looks like a boy because you can't tell she's wearing a ponytail, she's a nut.
