Description

This is another dress for a young girl on her first year at University, and she had a special party to go to. She wanted a basic body dress with a little bit of lace to make it very special, and this is what I came up with. I used silk chiffon in a lovely soft shade of pink. Look into my fabrics closet, and found this lace in a soft shade of skin color…..I though it was perfect to combine with the pink, and….sort of….knited-woven the draped silk and put the lace like : coming out of the panels…

    i love the way the lace peeks out of the chiffon “wrapping”. So clever and beautiful! The contrasts make it a unique and lovely little dress to slip on for a night out. The ingenue must have loved it!

    Lovely! It has a “shaby chic” and antique appeal, but very modern. What a ton of work it took to make this beautiful dress.
