Description

Inspired by Gertie(http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/), I made my own version of a sheath dress made my Nanette Lepore (http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/2011/04/daily-dress-nanette-lepore-eyelet.html). Its one of the favorite things I have made; although, I don’t have too many occasions to wear it.

Material Notes

Black eyelet (http://www.onlinefabricstore.net/eyelet-fabric/black-eyelet-fabric-circle-design-.htm)

    Beautiful! Did you line it, or are you wearing a slip underneath?

      Thanks! I am wearing a slip. I figure if I wanted to I could spice up the look and wear a different color in the future :)

      I thought the fabric was beautiful too. And so reasonably priced! I made a clutch with some of the extra and am contemplating what next project is deserving of the remainder of the scraps.
