OOTN: Vintage Lace Wannabe McQueen

I'm sure like many of you, the minute I saw the lace McQueen dress Drew Barrymore wore I fell in love



So when raiding my grandmother's sewing box in her attic, I pulled out this handmade beauty and fell in love again! It's a lace and black fabric dress she made in the 60s - 70s and the black fabric has faded to a lovely bottle green over the years.


Dress- Vintage

Tights - Primark

Shoes - Primark

Watch - Armani


It's become quite delicate - the lining is freying and falling apart other than just fading and I think will need a replacement soon. The lace has a couple of holes and needs a new eye for the hook and eye fastener. However I love it. I love that my nan made it so many years ago and that I caught the sewing bug from her.


If you want one similar, New Look has this John Zack lace dress for £39.99



Love the lace on skin look! What do you think of thick lace for Autumn?


  1. I prefer your nan's dress! So pretty! And how lucky are you to find beautiful things like that in the attic? x

  2. That dress is lovely. I wish I could come across a dress so pretty in the attic! The New look one is okay but I feel like there are so many just like that.

    Yours is so unique. You look lovely in it!


  3. You look so beautiful on that dress, I can't stop looking at you.
