I found this skirt at Target, the other day, on clearance for $4. I loved the lace overlay, but was sad it was all wrong for me. It was too short and not my size. I couldn't put it down though. The lace just hooked me and I knew I wanted this skirt. This got my creative juices flowing. I decided then and there it would become a dress for Miss Priss. Below is how I took a woman's lace skirt and made it into a toddlers dress. Super simple and super cute!
I turned the skirt inside out and slipped it onto Miss Priss. I then pinned the correct width and sewed down the sides.
Please excuse Miss Priss and her bed head. She had just woken up, when I convinced her to let me try this on her. Once I tried on the skirt and knew the width was right, I cut off my extra material. Try to cut close to the seam. You will use this material later for your fabric flower.
For the straps I forgot to take a picture, but I just used black gross-grain ribbon. I burned the edges with a lighter, so it wouldn't fray.
Here is what the finished project looked like. Paired with a black shirt, black tights, and black dress shoes. Miss Priss was all ready for church. This is probably my favorite thing I have sewed so far. I am still wishing it was in my size, but seeing Miss Priss and all her cuteness makes me not so jealous of her adorable new lace dress
