Here's a tutorial on how I made this lace back shirt:First I took a dress that I never wore (and it was kind of small) and I cut the bottom off so it was the length I wanted. You can keep it long if you want and just make a Lacey dress, that would also be very pretty. I sewed the bottom of the dress onto a pair of jeans that i cut the legs and crotch out of to make a skirt.
Decide where exactly you want the lace and what size/shape you want. Cut out the piece and pin it on, folding the raw edges under. If there are any Lacing loops be sure you don't cover them.
Add your lacing/ribbon. If your dress did not have a tie, or it became lost over the years it sat in your closet not being worn, you can use any ribbon or lacing that matches. Hem the bottom
and your shirt should be ready to wear - enjoy!
