I was super nervous bringing this dress to my “new” tailor because I haven’t built that trust factor yet. And given that he’s a 77 year old Italian tailor didn’t help my nervousness! But he did an amazing job on this dress. I didn’t take before photos because it looked like a big lace table cloth on me. It had no shape whatsoever and made me look like a box.
He had to slim both sides and remove the zipper completely and then re-attach it. *sweating* I was pretty panicked wondering will he be able to do this? What I love most about this dress is the neckline. I thought at first it was one of those cross wrap styles where I’d have to wear a cami underneath because cleavage would be a big problem but it’s not! YAY!
You can also see this dress on Cee, Jean and Callandra. They all look amazing in it! Let me know if I missed anyone and I will link you:) There are many crochet dresses to choose from out there. If you are looking for an affordable one, this Forever 21 crocheted dress is super cute or if you are looking for one with sleeves, this version comes in petites!
The back of the dress turned out really nicely. My tailor said that you can’t slim the sides too much otherwise the seat of the dress would be too tight and not look classy. I think he took the right amount in because it’s looks and feels fitted but not skanky skin tight.
Can you believe I am not wearing pumps? I haven’t busted these shoes out since the beginning of my blogging days. The heel is so high, it’s hard to walk in. I feel like I’m walking on stilts.
I wanted to include this shot because it was so different and I am so tired of my same poses staring at the camera with one arm on my hip and trying to look natural. So if I look crazy…my apologies in advance!
Sorry for all the crochet posts lately but I just love the vintage feminine look to it 🙂
