I call this lace dress my choccie chip cookie dress as thats what the colours remind me of!, my friend loved this dress and asked me to make her something similiar. It took me a while to get the lace but then it was all systems go lol. Its been adjusted a bit and i used different sleeves. I had origionally cut it so the scalloped edge showed at the bottom but she then decided she wanted it shorter. I can always add the scallop later if she likes. All in all i like the dress and the main thing is my friend does as well .shes quite shy unlike me but i’ll try and get a pic of the finished dress on her I did manage to get some headless pixs oh her trying it on before completion lol x
caramel lace with a slight stretch and gorgeous chocolate jersey.
