I made up this Tessuti Fabrics black cotton/nylon lace in the Linda skirt pattern for my daughter. I altered the pattern slightly by making the circular waist larger, to be gathered onto the waistband – this added fullness to the skirt and was ideal as I didn’t want to line the skirt. I also cut the waistband in two pieces to add a gathered frill to the top, to give a high waisted look.
The lace was perfect to leave raw edged at the hem…I was worried baby locking the edge (like to ruffle) would be too fussy.
Instead of interfacing the band I basted silk organza to both sides of the waistband. Do you think a self-covered skinny belt made up in this lace….would be an idea?
