My latest obsession is lace. For some reason lace and really girly clothes scream spring to me. If you follow this blog you know I love to change up my wardrobe each season with simple DIY accessories and refashions of my wardrobe. I mean why buy a new wardrobe each season? But I do get bored with my clothes from time to time. So I think for spring I will have fun with lace. I love the above dress with the lace cross back detail This would be an easy refashion to an old dress. All you would have to do is cut out the top of a dress above the bust line and create the straps at the shoulder to be longer enough to cross the back. You would also need to open up the back of course too.

I love the ideal of adding lace details as a refashion to your existing wardrobe or thrifting finds. I found great lace cardigan tutorials from Two Butterflies and Strawberry Koi. I also found great ideals for adding lace detail pictured below that could be easy DIY's. Just sew lace up the front of a hoddie on both sides of the zipper, be careful to be even when positioning the lace. And for the boyfriend sweater, just sew on a doily for the pockets. If you don't have any doilies you could try thrift stores or estate sales in your area.
