What i've been working on...

ok so here is one of my dream dress' i would LOVE to own! originally from anthropologie, but i haven't been able to find it. and even if i did, its not like i would be able to afford it! but isn't it just lovely?!
so since i couldn't find it, i decided i would make it! with a few modification of my own. i love the lace and that has got to be the perfect color of mint in my book. so i want to keep the same concept BUT, i couldn't decide what color to do the skirt and i'd been wanting to try this tutorial i found on pinterest about draping. so, as i was trying to figuring out where in the world to start, i decided that instead of making one dress, i would make the top that i wanted so that i could change the skirt and i wouldn't have to choose just one color and it makes it available for many different looks! bonus!! my fav kind of skirt is colorful accordion or pleated midi, like a vibrant red or a pastel peach or mint. all of which i am currently on the hunt for!

so here's what i have so far...(p.s. sorry for the poor pics!)

i put one of my skirts on mydouble to visualize my finished product. as you can see i am not finished! i ran out of lace, so till i make a trip to the store i'm at a stand still! but i'm very pleased with how it looks, i can't wait till its finished! 

p.p.s i just bought that beautiful skirt from thekissingtreevintage and i love it!

i will definitely show you guys when its finished!
