My DIY Miu Miu dress


Sparkling Bow DIY Miu Miu dress

I instantly fell in love with this Miu Miu dress discovered over on the lovely Gal Meets Glam blog. After realizing that I can't find it anywhere, I have decided to give it a try and create it myself. [ there is no copyright on clothes - by law they are considered a 'useful article' ] I do have some experience with sewing, so it wasn't out of the blue, but nothing as bold as this dress. I am so glad I did. I am uber happy with the result! It was tons of fun and a lot of work.

Thank you Alexis, from Orejonejo for helping me choose the fabric!

Here's the original picture I used as a model:


The short DIY story: removed the sleeves of an Old Navy t-shirt, sewed the lace bow on top, extended it with extra fabric (to make it look like a dress) and attached the ruffles on the bottom.
