For my refashioned crochet tablecloth dress I used two vintage circle cotton crochet tablecloths: One for the circle skirt and one for the kimono sleeve blouse. This is already the third refashion of the crochet tablecloth dress but I finally like how it turned out! 😀
At first I made the crochet tablecloths into a separate skirt and blouse. But it never stayed in place. And I also didn’t have a slip that I could wear underneath. Click on the link below to see how the skirt looked before the refashion! 😀
So this time I made a fitted slip with mint green cotton batiste fabric. It’s the same fabric that I also used for my Edwardian princess slip with Valenciennes lace inserts.

After making the fitted slip I sewed the crochet lace blouse and skirt to the underdress with overhand stitches by hand. My crochet lace dress closes at the left side with three snaps and one hook & eye at the waist. The skirt of the underdress is a full circle skirt – like the crochet lace skirt – with a ruffle at the bottom. The ruffle is 10m and 30cm (406″) long and heavily pieced together because I ran out of fabric! 😉
