I had a load of this toasty coloured crochet fabric lying around and envisioned them as wings at first. Then it kind of evolved into a dress. I was inspired by Chloe, Lover, the 70s and Anita Pallenberg. It's an a-line tent shaped frock with a scalloped hem, fitted bust darts, flared crochet-lace sleeves and a kind of key-hole back. It took several hours spread across 4 days to complete. Unfortunately I mismeasured the length of the dress so as you can tell, it's a little bit short! I think I'll wear leggings underneath it or maybe flared jeans if I can op-shop a pair.

here's a link to a "making of" video i shot while i was ... well, making the dress haha

I followed this tutorial by Vain&Vapid on how to sew scallopped hems, it was my first time and I'm so glad they turned out half-decent!

Stunning! I think it would look awesome paired with some really pale gold leggings. I love the sleeves and I'm going to have to take a look at the scalloped edgings.
