sewing lace

Last week I finished my favorite dress of the few I've made so far!  It is made entirely of lace, unlined. I love it and have worn it with a black slip and black tights and with a nude slip and no tights and it's lovely both ways. The lace was difficult to sew and I had to make the buttons non-functioning because the stress would tear the lace around them... I put snaps underneath instead and it closes on the side with snaps as well.


  1. wow, that's so pretty!! Love the colour, too!

    Amazing dress ~ I am sure it looks absolutely stunning. I would be way to scared to try my hand at making a dress entirely out of lace, so kudos to you! I think it's marvelous. ^ U ^
