Description

I liked the Burda original, but thought a drapier fabric might work better for us non-models. So I chose georgette for the main fabric. The lace is leftover from the self-drafted ‘straight’ skirt shown in one of the photo. Being a big thrifty I pieced small off-cuts together instead of cutting it as one piece. Spray starch helps a lot with sewing the silk georgette on the bias. In retrospect maybe the lace is a bit too heavy for the georgette. The top keep pulling towards the front. Nothing venture nothing gained right? More details on my blog

      Don’t they just! Lace along would have scared me. But the combination here + the pattern choice I think help the lace look modern & much more wearable.
