I had wanted to make a ligth and pretty lace dress with heartcut in the front and open lace back for some time and when I found an old lace tablecloth from a triftstore, I though that it would now be the time to finally make my dreamdress real. By chance we had also this fancy dinner for our school’s gaduates coming, so I decided to make the dress for that occassion. I must say that I had (again..) a perfect timing with finishing the dress as I sew the last buttons 20 minutes before I had to run out the door for my ride! Despite that I sew it in a hurry, I’m still happy how the dress looks. The “buttonholes” are made by crocheting and the buttons are simply some pearls.
