Description

I LOOOVE lace! anything pretty and floraly and lacy….. So when I found this stretchy lace fabric in the remnants bin I was overjoyed!! I mean STRETCHY lace??!! Pure heaven really… I figured the best way to show off it’s prettyness would be to make a simple dress. So I made a pattern using a stretchy tee shirt of mine and lengthened the back panel to dress length, then cut the front into three pieces and lengthened them as well… And this is what became of it all!

Material Notes

loooovey stretchy lace.. I think it was a viscose blend…. it’s nice and soft

      it’s brilliant! and the first time i’ve evr come across it… i was so happy =) it doesn’t have a lining, i am just wearing a white singlet underneath. i thought i’d keep it unlined so that i could wear black, white or colours underneath and change the look completely!
