Here’s a happy story for your Tuesday morning. Embroidered dresses are flooding the internet like crazy, right? Well, I’m completely obsessed with every one of them. I can’t get enough. So a few months ago I pinned this image of a gorgeous embroidered blue dress, and since I couldn’t find a dress source, I decided to just make one. There was basically zero chance that I ever would find a fabric similar to it, but I’m a crazy optimist. So, you know…I held out hope. And then, not two weeks later, I walked into Old Navy and this blue embroidered beauty was hanging on the rack — the dress gods were clearly on my side. It was a little short for me, so I sized up three sizes to make it knee length, and then used this tutorial to resize the sleeves and shoulders to fit. And now my embroidered dress dreams have come true. 
Sadly this dress is out of stock at Old Navy, but I’ve rounded up a couple of my favorite sort of similar embroidered dresses below! Click the images below to shop them!
