So I designed a sun-dress for my three year old with those elements.
The dress is white cotton eyelet. It sewn almost like a tube top, with elastic around the top and the skirt gathered slightly to the bottom. Then I took 3" wide lace and tacked it in place at the top and bottom of the dress and stitched across it at the skirt seam to create a pocket for the ribbon sash to go through.
Each lace band runs up and over her shoulder to create a strap/sleeve at the top. I also added a tiny cotton lace trim at the bottom of the skirt for a finishing detail.
With the hat and gloves from our dress up box I think she looks ready to head to the shore "In The Good Old Summertime".
I also entered the dress into this contest. There are a lot of fun projects to look at over there.
