Description

My friend came to me with some lace that she had found on a trip to the old dunmore scranton abandoned lace factory. We decided to embark on a journey of making a fun dress for her to ware to our schools spring fling dance. The project when relatively quickly although in the end I did suffer a close lose in my family so I was not able to completely finish it up to my standards. This is why I am scrambling to get it done although it was extremely fun and enjoyable to make . I hope you enjoy.

    I’m planning something similar to this based on the “Elizabeth” pattern for my wedding dress, and I’m wondering if you could tell me a little about how you cut the skirt… to my eye it looks like a circle skirt, am I right? How did you achieve such beautiful assymetry?

      sorry or the late response. i will try to explain the skirt. it is mode from an oval lace table cloth that had a rip in the center. so it essentially a circle skirt. the center hole is closer to the front then the back and the circumference is much larger than her waist size i would add your waist and test that on the muslin. the gathering and pleating takes a lot of trial and error so have the seam riper ready. what u will find is that the sides rise on the skirt similar to a napkin skirt so play with the shape if u don’t like that style. i hope this dose not come to you to late. I know how much i hate not getting a response so feel free to message me with any questions.

      O and for the asymmetry fold the fabric in half perfectly and pin it no exceptions. it is actual a lot easier than it looks more so with a helper. after folding lay your pattern pieces and fork with the skirt separate from the top it simplifies.

    I lovelovelove that this is made out of “found” lace from an abandoned factory. I’m tempted to go find this place and see if I can get any! (Live about 2 hours from Dunmore/Scranton).

    love it! especially the position of the lace at the top of the bodice…well skirt is wonderful too but that kinda speaks for itself…think that bodice placement is the icing!
