Inspired by the pillowcase dresses that grace Pinterest, Vickie Howell wanted to create a simple crochet lace piece that transforms a bit of a frock’s edging into an entire garment. The result is a lacy and timeless crochet dress that can be worn over a onesie or on its own with bloomers or leggings. It’s easy-breezy and pretty.
