DIY Juicy Couture Inspired Mint Lace Dress

DIY Juicy Couture Inspired Mint Lace Dress


Lace is fun this season, especially when you pair it with sheer and skin tones.

You will find many fun posts with lace this season on my blog (coming soon),

so to start,

this week’s post was inspired by one of my favorite looks from Juicy Couture.

I fell completely in love with the sheer sleeves and sheer lace trim for the hemline (A.P.C. has an amazing version).

It’s modest and super flirty and the tutorial I have to remake this look is dang near perfection!

How to recreate this Juicy Couture Lace Mint Dress,

  • You’ll need McCall’s Pattern 6465 and make dress D
  • Fabric. I bought this gorgeous circle mint lace at Joann Stores, “Pastel Perfection Collection Circles Lace Mint Fabric“.
    Buy according to pattern instructions. You will also need to buy some mint underlay(liner) for the bodice but not for the sleeves.
  • Follow pattern instructions, EXCEPT
    • Do not hem the lace sleeves or dress.
      Instead, cut around the circles to create a scalloped hem.
    • Hem the fabric, underlay/liner, underneath 1.5-2″ shorter than the lace hem.
  • and you have yourself the most amazing mint dress! Easy, right? HECK YES.

    Fell in love with your version of this dress. I bought the fabric and lining to make this, looks so easy! Thanks for the inspiration. As a fellow seamstress I’ll be following your blog from here on out.

    So do you cut the underlay and the lace dress exactly the same size or the lace slightly bigger? And are they sewn together or just worn on top of one another? Thanks

    So did you cut the lace part exactly the same size as the lining or slightly larger to fit over it? And did you stitch them together or you just wear them on top of one another? Thanks

      Thanks for our comment, Sarah! It’s the same size and I did stitch them together. But you can definitely do make them into two pieces as well.
