After seeing this dress
, I knew I wanted to add some ric-rac to the collar of one of my dresses. I choose this pretty pink one because I hadn't really been wearing it much but with my new bright pink hair, I think it looks really fun!
Here are the before and after photos...
Not a super big change, but I think it makes the dress extra cute. And...it was so easy. I have recently made friends with the glue gun so I asked it to help me with this project. I just started the ric-rac at the back where the zipper is and glued it around the neckline all the way to the other side of the zipper. Easy? Easy.

Oh yeah, and just a note to self...
Let me know if you get glue gun happy and decide to attach some ric-rac to jazz up your outfit!
That looks like it's been there the whole time! It looks adorable :) xReplyDelete
It looks awesome! :):)ReplyDelete
That's cute :)! I can't believe you did it with a glue gun. Do you think you can wash it that way?ReplyDelete
Adorable! I love my glue gun too. We're BFF's!! :)ReplyDelete
So so cute!!! A very simple yet elegant touch. Great job!ReplyDelete
Ahahha the last photo made me crack up. You're a stunner, Elycia. And I love the look of the dress when paired with the brown belt!ReplyDelete
It looks adorable now... I love how such a subtle thing can make a BIG change. Very nice. :) And the belt and shoes pull the whole thing together wonderfully. Sea MarieReplyDelete
it looks very pretty..:)ReplyDelete
Sometimes I put my bra on not thinking about what I'm wearing and forget what's happening until I get to work and think...wow. You're an idiot. I love this dress. i love the ric rac. I love you. So much love.ReplyDelete
I thought I was safe with a white bra yesterday (isn't the whole point of white bras that they don't show through stuff?) but NO, I spent the day with gleaming neon bright boobs poking through my T-shirt. *sigh*ReplyDelete
The ric-rac is super-cute!
that is such an awesome idea! there is another diy i have been wanting to try but keep forgetting and your post just reminded me....adding lace to cut off shorts, may sound weird but i say it on a blog and i fell in love!ReplyDelete
I love it! Now to find something to add ric rac to...ReplyDelete
Oh I love it! Now I'm gonna have to add some to my dresses too! :) P.S. I make that black bra mistake every time. Oh well.ReplyDelete
Too funny about the bra. However, I didn't notice until you mentioned it. ;)ReplyDelete
I love the bright pink hair! The dress looks great with your hair now.ReplyDelete
You look so cool, Elycia! You suit the hair and the tattoo so much, very pretty :)<3ReplyDelete
lol that hey nerd made me laugh so hard(and i looked like a nerd cause i started laughing at the library lol)ReplyDelete
lol that was me,the nerd erikaReplyDelete
hahahaha!!! I probably would have put on a black bra too. :) Love the ric rac! I have some vintage packs from my grandma's sewing shop. Must use them.ReplyDelete
HAAHAHAHA I love the black bra part. So funny.ReplyDelete
Too cute! I recently inherited some green ric-rac and had no idea what to do with it. I'm going to have to try this. :)ReplyDelete
what a cute detail! and your pink hair is suuuuuper adorable on you.ReplyDelete
I just thrifted a dress for my toddler that has ric-rac and I was just a little jealous. Now I can add some to one of mine! I am big on throwing everything in the washer though...I wonder if the glue gun glue will hold. Did you use fabric glue sticks or just regular ones?ReplyDelete
i just used a regular glue stick. no work yet on whether it lasts through the wash! Another option would be sewing the ric-rac on by running a stitch through the middle of the ric-rac. that would definitely hold in the wash!ReplyDelete
I really like this. So simple yet it does so much, I can think of a dress that black ric-rac would look perfect on!ReplyDelete
