My second dress! Simplicity Pattern 2951, which was originally going to be African Print before I had a construction nightmare and had to purchase brand new fabric two days before my deadline. As I was working, it seemed way-way-way too plain, so I decided to add a skirt lining and attach lace trim to said lining in order to create a peekaboo effect behind the outside hem.
(laughs) I can’t show you the back; because then I’d have to kill you.
100% Cotton Ginko Print in an art deco style is just too lovely to pass up. The lace trim I just so happened to have in my sewing box. Boning in the bodice side seams to give it some shape.
