This is the dress I am most proud of so far. It’s made of a lace remnant (synthetic unfortunately) and ivory satin as an underlay. I really looked for inspiration everywhere (see last picture) and in the end, I have used a popular Burda Magazine pattern, but modified it quite a lot:
1. I changed the neckline to a much higher one but I only cut the underlay above the bust and have used French seams at the shoulders so it would be barely visible
2. I changed the skirt which was gathered to an A-line skirt with pleats.
3. I have added a little keyhole with a pearl button at the back
4. I have bias-lined by hand the neckline, the keyhole and the armholes
I am so glad I did it, I was a bit scared but sewing lace is not as hard as I thought. Hope you like it!
