I'm a serious thrifter.  Recently, I acquired a large spool of cream lace trim. Looking for things to do with this lace, paired with a pale green matte satin (also thrifted), I decided to make a dress of the beautiful daughter of a friend. I used around 14 yards of the lace for the dress. It hardly put a dent in the spool.

More pictures along with a full tutorial can be found at my blog: http://jordannhall.blogspot.com/2011/11/lace-trim-baby-dress.html
Tutorial for the bonnet will be posted on my blog next week!

That's lovely. What a cute dress and bonnet.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Really good idea to use lace like that! Great job, I'd love to have a dress like that for my daughter.

Thanks! It really wasn't difficult to make, it just took a lot of time to pin all the lace on straight. Because I thrifted everything, this dress probably cost me around 25-50 cents to make. I turned out exactly the way I had envisioned it, I was so happy when it was done!
