Description

I’ve had this lovely black lace for a while just waiting on the right pattern. I saw the magazine on ebay, i had a look at the pics and fell in love with this dress. Its one of those patterns you could do a lot with. I decided to put the lime green under it rather than black or cream. i’m really pleased with the dress x

lace and jersey

    Oooh Mary that dress rocks! Lime green underneath black lace was an excellent call – I love how it glints under the lace! And you sure did have fun on that photoshoot!

    You are a knockout in this sleek dress of yours! The lime green adds a bit of drama and interest. I adore the model-esque photos of you, incorporating fun, style, and attitude! Creating and wearing your own clothes is such a cool thing!

      thank you so much heather, that was such a lovely thing to say.I love dressing up and having fun. making my own clothes gives me such pleasure. my family and friends love seeing what i’ve made on nights out.I made matching undies and i was delighted witg them but i forgot about the stretch factor and i got them as far as my knees lol. i’ll be making lots more to use up my scraps now i know to allow more fabric lol x

    Love this Mary…the green looks really good underneath the black and your photos are fun as usual. I am cracking up about the undies but at least you have a go at it. Next time don’t forget the stretch it is what conforms to the body

      thanks kisses, i was really proud of the knickers and could’nt wait to show my mum and sis them on lol. thankfully i’d a back up pair ready lol. i added the side panals but then kinda lost interest.i will make more though. i must put the first dress on. i made a trial run up with lace i did’nt like the colour of but it turned out nice. the origonal did"bt have sleeves but i llove lace sleeves so i added them x

      thank you, the last photos my first attempt at making undies. they looked so good until i tried to get them on and realised i had’nt taken into account they need to stretch lol. i had to add side panals. they’re not great but i learned a lot making them so i’ll have another go x
