Our 6 year wedding anniversary was on the 13th this month and the hubby was taking me to a very nice steak restaurant. Being tired of all the nice dresses I already own, I wanted to make something special for the occasion!
I was lucky enough that when our roomie was living with us she gave me this beautiful dress. I love the black lace with teal!
Speaking of our roomie, she even put this top into my refash pile….I am so lucky!
I took off the lace top from the bottom of the shirt.
I pinned the lace top onto the top of the dress. Then stitched it together, making sure both pieces were insideout.
Being only 5’2″ this dress was a little long, even while wearing heels. I tucked up the bottom of the hem up to the bottom of the lace on the bottom of the dress. I used a decorative stitch for this just to add some detail.
Let me tell you, using a decorative stitch vs. a straight stitch took such a LONG time!
We ended up having such a nice dinner to celebrate our anniversary. I also got complements on my beautiful new dress!
