Crochet Back Inset

On Monday I showed you what I did with a front crochet lace inset that I got from Wholeport.  I also received this awesome little piece too!

I guess you could put it in the front as well, but I decided it would look best as an inset on the back of a cute little summer dress.

I have loads of maxi dresses so I decided it was time for something a little more casual.  I used the same basic tunic top pattern that I used on Monday but this time I lengthened it.

I used View C
but made it longer~
I used the same technique as the tunic from Monday.  I just put the top together as usual, minus the back neck facing.  I stitched on the inset and then did the side seams, armhole facings, and hem.

Make sure to overlap the shoulder seam
just a bit~
Once it's sewn down, trim the fabric underneath away~

It's a little plain in the front on it's own but it's easy to jazz up with a great necklace and my favourite sandals.

You can find this inset over at for less than $2.  Check out their Lace/Applique section for more fun pieces too!

What style do you like best for summer?  Maxi dresses or short dresses?  Leave a comment below~

Hopped over from free pretty things to comment that it looks really pretty.

I love that you added this, so adorable! I'm kind of inspired to re use some old lace!
