Learn how I made a DIY doily dress out of thrifted fabric and doilies from my late grandmother. Get the tips and tricks to sew your own!
I loved this dress when I first made it, and wore it here and there. Over time I realized there were a couple of things that irritated me so I went back and fixed them.
I used the dress sewing pattern Butterick 5605. I skipped the belt and the bow and altered the back neckline slightly.
My favorite part of this doily dress is the open scoop neckline in the back. I had a perfect lace piece made for a neckline that I applied on the back. The zipper runs through it, but I think it is just stunning.
