Hey Quelli! Why don't you head over to the introductions thread and say hi to everyone?

As for your question: What is it, EXACTLY that you need help with? Fabric choice? Design? How to sew? Trimmings? We're glad to help you but this is your project - we're not gonna do all the thinking for you! Very Happy

Bleach can be tricky. If you dont do it right, or its the wrong kind of fabric, it doesn't always come out plain white. Test with a bit you can't see from the outside or a bit you're chopping off. Like maybe the straps?
Head to somewhere like Evan's, Arthur Toye or Spotlight. They have ooooodles of types of lace. You're bound to find one that matches, then just sew it on.

I know this has a solved tag on it - but don't use bleach. Use dygon - it's a dye stripping product made by dylon and it strips as much of the existing dye as possible without being blotchy or yellowy like bleach does. :)
