I made this lace dress up for Claudia to wear to a wedding on the weekend, as there’s a serious lack of suitable special occasion dresses for 12 year olds!!!
The dress was simple and very quick to make. For the bodice, I basted 100% Nylon two-tone chantilly lace ‘Lovelace’ onto ‘Rosa Pink’ silk satin and gathered the lace and a slightly less gathered silk satin together for the skirt. The armholes and neckline are trimmed with black silk georgette and to highlight the trim I added a black belt made from our lovely soft Mokuba grosgrain ribbon range.
To be honest Claudia’s dress was inspired by these cute ballet style shoes!
