Upcycled Vintage Doily Long Cotton Dress

Save a doily! I found a lovely vintage doily in an antique store! I decided to see what I could create with it with my love for Fiber Arts and clothing. I bought a white dress clothing blank from Dharma Trading Company. I hand dyed the dress and the doily together and then positioned the doily on the front of the dress. I sewed it on the front with matching thread.
I can create many items of clothing in such a manner. This particular dress comes in many sizes, lengths and sleeve lengths. It can also be dyed many colors.
