Yellow Lacey Monogrammed dress.

 I made this dress almost a year ago, and its still one of our favs.  I'm glad I mad it slightly big.  I got the idea here.  I made this dress using a simple bodice pattern I had on hand.  The rest was done pretty much on my own (not that there was much to it). 
The best thing about this dress is that it was really cheap to make.  I paid $1 for a yard of the yellow fabric (which ended up being exactly enough!) and $1 for the spool of lace at Joannes. I figured I since I paid so little to make the dress, I could "splurge" a little and get her monogram on the front )it needed a little something anyway).  I found some lady to do it for me for $5.  I could really use an embroidery machine!
I love the way this dress turned out.  Elisa wears it fairly often, relatively speaking.
