Sew Easy, DIY Neon and Lace Dress

Yesterday I picked up my last check at the town center and decided to shop around to see if there was anything I wanted. I kept seeing white lace dresses but In my head I wanted to layer it with neon. I saw the perfect dress at forever21 but for some reason I told myself I could make it myself. The one pictured is a cute A-line dress from Topshop. I was feeling crafty so I drove to Jo-ann's fabric and bought some lace and neon broadcloth and started molding my dress.

I'm petite so I only used 1 yd of each fabric. They sell lace and broadcloth in virtually every color so you can make this dress yourself in any colors you choose!

If you want a tutorial let me know, I'll draw it up, it was Super easy to make!

What a great idea to make neon a little bit classy! ;) I think it needed the help, but I would actually wear this dress!
