Hey there=]

The fabric overlay looks like its been crochet.. it kind of looks like a vintage tablecloth(not in a bad way : hehe), try looking in vintage shops for really large ones, im sure if you have a good dress maker she/he can work magic! Best of luck its very pretty!

I agree with Panda pue, it looks like a vintage tablecloth or you could look for battenberg lace, it is usually on a crisp cotton or linen backgroung and can be used as  the top layer of your dress. Very pretty, Good luck!! Yumyum

Super cute dress!  To me, it looks like the top layer is a bunch of doilies sewn together and then the whole thing sewn over a colorful dress.  You could easily find a bunch of doilies at thrift stores and sew them together to fit over a colorful dress that you find.

Your Inspiration dress is AWESOME!! Also to cut corners, the green under dress could def befound on clearance! What about a BM dress? You only need to love the color and shape because you’re covering it. That will def save time, and depending on the deal you find…could save a few bucks. I think the heart doilies is PERFECT!! I’ll obsess over this with you and let you know if I find anything. Lol

I actually saw these pictures on Pintrest and I plan on doing this too, maybe for my rehersal dinner. The actual instructions were what another bee already said. She sewed a bunch of doilies together and made it an overlay for a green dress. Also, it had said she sewed the top to the green dress so it wouldn’t fall. I wish I still had the instructions saved I would give em to you. I don’t know if where you live there are a lot of dollar stores or any Shopper’s World, but they have nice doilies and really cheap! ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck on your project!!
