Lengthening a dress with lace

 The other day I got a cute new dress.
The only problem was it was a little a lot too short. 


Like no mom of 3 kids should ever be caught wearing it short. 
But it was still really cute and on super sale so I bought it hoping I could figure out a way to make it more mom friendly.   


As I was digging through my mountain of fabric/trim/etc. I found this beautiful vintage lace. 
Score! 
I knew it would be perfect. 


So I pinned it around the bottom of the dress (to the front of the dress so I didn't lose the pretty scalloped edge)  


and sewed it on. 


Now I have a pretty, lacy, perfect length dress. 
I think I actually like it better with the lace. 
What do you think?

I wish all projects could be that easy.

What a great idea! Seems like every dress I see these day is WAY short. Not for this Momma of 2! :)
