Hello! I am a novice sewer, but I am feeling ambitious would like to try to re-create this dress: http://www.harveynichols.com/womens/categories-1/designer-dresses/day/s441202-lace-dress.html?colour=GREEN, worn by Kim Sears at the Wimbledon game this year.
I feel like a shift dress wouldn’t be too hard for me, but I’ve never worked with lace before (cotton lace) or tried to do a lined garment (I would like to just make a slip separate from the lace overlay). Anyway, I’ve found a pattern that looks perfect: http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Simplicity_6535 (in the “1” style) but I’m worried I’ll have trouble because it doesn’t come with instructions for a slip.
I found a Colette pattern for a shift dress that could work, because it comes with instructions for a sheer fabric with slip, but no button placket in the front which is what I really want. http://www.colettepatterns.com/shop/laurel
Can anyone offer any advice on this? Any help is much appreciated!
