Here's the pic.  What do you call this kind of fabric/lace?  Like if I want to ask for it at a shop or search Ebay for it.

Thanks!

This is eyelet lace, in case you haven't gotten an answer yet.  You can buy it almost any width and in many, many different eyelet styles.  You can also buy it in different colors, too.  It is fun to sew with and I love this dress.  It would be fun to sew it, too!

Just noticed you already got an answer, but I still want to comment on that dress.  It's beautiful!

My Irish mom has always called it Embroidery Anglaise (also Broidery Anglais).  I think that's the Frenchy term for it.  You might try searching under that name too.
