DIY Tiered Lace Skirt // While Camden Sleeps

DIY Tiered Lace Skirt

Hello Friends! I made this fun skirt for Valentine’s Day and loved how it turned out. Because lace is fairly complicated, I feel this is more of an intermediate level, but still somewhat easy! Let’s start off with the materials you’ll need. Lace I recommend finding the longest width lace you […]
