This is my first and only attempt at a bubble hem dress, so it took a lot of trial and error on my part, to get this to turn into something close to what I originally wanted. The original inspiration was by Sass & Bide, but the lacey black (eyelet) fabric was inspired by a Monique Lhuillier number of similar shape. It doesn’t show in the picture too clearly but this is lined in shocking orange, matching the glass beads ring buckle. I wanted to keep it young and fun, as black lace is too serious and safe on its own. The bow at the back was removable with the belt for versatility.

    This is really well done – that bubble hem can be a nightmare, particularly if you get too “perfect” about it. Love the orange showing through – these are hard to photograph – to see the black you’ve got to get everything else so white, it sometimes looks artificial. Great job!

    You did a great job, I like the dress a lot! I think the final result is definately worth all the trial and error effort! I agree with Benedikta, would love to see more pictures too and pattern info?

    Hey Shiela, I like the dress a lot, did you make the pattern yourself? The big bow in the back is awesome. Maybe you could show some more detail shots..
