Coffee Shop Lace Dress--Make that a Double-Double

When I saw the Coffee Shop Lace Dress from Bella Sunshine Designs, I knew I wanted to make one. 
No, I knew I wanted to make two.
Two dresses--one for each of my girls.
I figured that they'd make perfect Fall/Winter Sunday dresses, especially since the pattern has a long sleeve option.

My girls were both pretty thrilled with them--even the youngest!
I think I'll be lengthening my older daughters dress a bit yet by cutting the bottom of the skirt off, adding a contrasting strip of fabric and sewing the bottom back onto that. I feel it's a little too short, and that is my own fault since the pattern has finished dress measurements--I just didn't look closely enough at those.

The dark fabric is from Art Gallery's Tule line that I bought a couple of months ago at Canadian National Fabric. The other fabrics are a Ty Pennington line that I picked up at Stay Home Fabrics some time ago as well.

You can pick up a copy of this pattern here.
