A quick & easy DIY idea...

Saturday, 8 January 2011

I fell head over heels in love with this dress the minute I saw this photo on Lookbook, but sadly they no longer stock it. But it did give me an idea that it might make a fun DIY project! Hunt down a plain dress/sweater dress (I have a cotton H&M navy/grey one that would be perfect for this - it fits like a dream but is very plain, so it tends not to get a lot of wear), source a pretty white lace/crochet collar (there are some lovely ones here, here & here). You can then just attach the collar with a few hand stitches. Ta da, an affordable & personalised pretty dress - Louise x


  1. Great idea. I bought one of the plain black peter pan collar dresses from Topshop but really wish the collar had a bit more effect so I may also follow suit! I'll let you know how it goes.

  2. Clever idea! Do show us when you've done it! Plus, when you get bored of the collar you can always change it :)

  3. Great idea...which I might just have to borrow!
