This attractive half sleeve dress is perfect for a night out on the town... or use a lighter color and wear it to brunch! Lace is on trend these days, but why spend hundreds of dollars on a name brand dress when you can make one yourself? The step-by-step instructions are easy to understand and geared toward all sewing levels (even beginners). All you need is two yards of stretch lace fabric, two yards of solid stretch fabric, scissors, and a sewing machine. This tutorial is set up so that you will use your own measurements as the basis for the dress. That way, the tutorial can be used for any size. This tutorial does not include actual pattern pieces; instead, a diagram will be scaled up according to your specific measurements. Go ahead, give it a try! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY attach arms SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The tutorial can be used for any size - it is set up so that you will use your own measurements as the basis for the dress.

I spend my days working on a number of different creative endeavors. Sewing, graphic design, photography, interior design, crafting and more. If it's creative, I'm interested. I grew up in a very artsy household, learning to sew at the early age of 8 years old... scrunchies were my project of choice in those days! Now I love to combine all of my hobbies by designing sewing tutorials for other creative people to use and be inspired by. When I'm not working, I'm out exploring the lesser known parts of Boston or eating at hip new restaurants. Or shopping. Or hiking. Or looking for an ever-elusive Boston street parking spot (preferably on the left - I love a good challenge). For lots more crafty inspiration, check out my blog:
