Blue eyelet Laurel

As soon as I finished my first Laurel  I knew that I wanted to try my next one in an eyelet fabric. I have never used eyelet fabric before and this dress is so simple and perfect for it. No way to screw it up! I had this vision of bright turquoise eyelet material and I finally found this, the las on the bolt in just enough to make this dress. It was fate!

Now there really isn’t much to say about this dress, it is very plain and simple but that is what I was going for with this one. I plan to wear it to work (last 7 days of school count down has begun!) with just a jean jacket thrown over and some flats. The less fussy my wardrobe is the better, I am dealing with 6th graders! I wanted it to fit more like a tank dress, so I didn’t add the sleeves… although they would’ve been really cute, maybe later on eyelet Laurel 2.0. I also lowered the neckline on this one.

The blue fabric that I lined the dress with is slightly lighter than the blue in  the eyelet fabric but I like how it highlights the pattern. I have some Marc Jacobs plum floral eyelet from Mood which I think is calling Laurel’s name. It may or may not be too grandma though. But grandma is totally in right now, right??
