Description

The bodice is black lace on top of pink cotton. I used my fave pattern “afternoon tea top” again, and a simple rectangle skirt. I found and “borrowed” these cute buttons at my grandma’s in England when I went over last year. You can’t really see it on the pics but I hemmed the skirt with this cute wiggly stitch that I discovered on my machine the other day ;)

Sorry I forgot to iron it before I took the photos.

Not sure when I’ll ever get to wear this ( it turned out much fancier than planned and I don’t really ever wear this kind of stuff), but hey, it was fun making !

    It looks great! I really like how you’ve combined materials and details (nice buttons)! Lucky girl to find such nice lace (or is it that you used it in a great way?)!

    Great job! It’s very cute. I agree, you could dress it down with a nice cardigan sweater and flats.

    It’s cute. You can dress it down with a simple black cardigan. I’de use to live about 200Km from Carcassonne, now I live in the Netherlands. I miss France…
