I wanted vintage style dress for my 30th birthday. I love lace at the moment so I decided to make a dress from a colored lace with nude fabric underneath.
I found the red lace on sale. Only thing was that id did not have scalloped edge, but I cut them my self and they turned out great!
The neckline on the original pattern looked good on the model but not on me, so I turned the corners in and it became much more flattering.
I read about problems with the sleeves being too tight from other people’s projects so I decided to do very simple lace sleeve on the dress.
I really love how it turned out!
Lace, bridal satin underneath. I sew the fabrics together before sewing the dress together. I did not want the seams on the lace showing on the dress.
