Hot! MTL: Frilly Lily Dress

For today’s Make This Look, we opted to use gauze instead of polyester. If I were to make this dress and wanted to really make it match the original, I would probably buy just the ivory gauze and then dye the fabric to match the other tiers. Then, I could also dye some eyelet lace the color of the second tier (as well as the ribbon belt matching the bottom tier). But, that’s probably much more work than anyone should probably do.


Original Inspiration



  • Make the top tier the same color as the bodice.
  • To match the original inspiration, cut the bodice neckline straight across
