Mini dress

I'm absolutely killing it with my post titles these days^^
So about today's garment, I started making it around Christmas time because I wanted a dress to go to a New Year's Eve party but then I realised that I'd be eating, drinking and probably behaving like an idiot and went with a teeshirt and jeans instead -and believe me that was one wise decision! All this to say that I put my dress on stand-by and it took me 2 weeks to (almost) complete it, which is a shame given how easy it was to make: I used my basic, sleeveless bodice and attached a half-circle skirt to it, I finished the edges with bias tape and put an invisible zipper at the back.

The reason I made the skirt super short is because I wanted to add rows of big ricrac to lengthen it to the knee but I got distracted by a ton of stuff and have only put one row so far :(

I want to add some bigger white or yellow ricrac to this one and finish with another row of the red one, I'm sure it would be cool! Or a friend also suggested sewing some to figure a mock collar around the neckline, that may work well too.

  1. Oooh, I love how you've attached that ric cool and clever!!!

  2. This is just so creative - love the idea of the ricrac! Incredibly stylish...J

  3. Nice dress, and I like the red ricrac! I can imagine your dress with more rows of ricrac at the hem, and I think it would be pretty cool indeed!

  4. Oh, love to see the finished dress with more ricrac. That would look cuter!

  5. Thank you! After posting about the dress I went and bought the missing ricrac and now it's finished, I'll edit the pics soon!

  6. it is also very nice this way and if you think it is too short you can wear it with a trouser.

  7. Magnifique !
    Une question : le "ricrac" (eh oui, on en oublie son français. "serpentin" d'après la mercière) est cousu à la main ?

    1. Hello Karine, merci! Oui le ricrac/croquet^^ est cousu à la main et après j'en ai rajouté 2 rangs eux aussi reliés entre eux par un petit point :)

  8. I love this dress on you - cute but the colour also makes it classic looking! The ric-rac looks so beautifully attached too.
