How to create a beautiful bohemian dress for the summer!
I created this dress because I adore a maternity shirt that my mom wore in the '70s that I nowadays wear as a dress. It has short bell sleeves and there's something I just love about the look of that style of sleeves. I bought a lace curtain (because I will never not love lace) from a thrift store and created this beauty from scratch. If you plan to embark on this project, I recommend past experience sewing lace and knowing how to sew a french seam/use a serger.

    My sleeve ends and bottom were the edges of the lace which won't fray so I only had to hem the neckline.
