Summer Dress For Me...

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.
Then I folded it in half and sewed an end together at a slight angle.

This is what it looked like with one end sewn together.  Then I pinned it to the front and sewed along the top and down the middle.
Then I added this square gold button and it's done!
