Used McCalls 6462. I used the non-stretch lace and lined the dress with a heavy cotton.
Modifications to the pattern included:
…For the top of the dress, I cut the lining by 1.5 and serged. Allowed 1 inch of the lace to hang over the lining. Folded .25 inches of the lining towards the wrong side and sewed the wrong side of lace to the right side of lining. I also took 2 inches off the shoulder length in order for the fit to be a bit more snug.
…For the skirt, I shortened the lining by 1.5 inches. I left the lace unhemmed.
