I made this dress out of a vintage slip I got at a thrift store. The top is stretchy lace with shoulder pads. It's kinda weird because the shoulder pads aren't sheer but the rest is, but I think it looks cool. I kept the original skirt and added seventeen layers of ruffles... was more lace than I dreamed it would take haha.

Super cute!!  The seventeen layers of lace must've taken forever to sew on!

Great job!  Love it for so many reasons and right now everywhere you look you see ruffled minis.  I see a knock off in the future for my 8 yr old. Wink  Thanks for the inspiration.

This is great! I agree with a previous poster about a knockoff for my 7 year old. I would make one for me but the booty is a bit to big to make ruffles look good. LOL
