One of my favourite dresses of all time is a orange lace dress from the sixties that my mom probably thrifted thirty years ago. I wear it sparingly since the lace has started weaken and rip more easily. One day at the fabric store, I saw the same lace in blue and decided to remake it. They didn’t have any lining in the exact same blue, but I decided that the periwinkle tone really brought out the pattern in the blue lace more. I made bias tape out of the lining to use as trim around the neck and armholes. When I finished it, my aunt said I looked like a bridesmaid from the 70s (in a good way I hope!). There is a zipper down the back and I have included a photo of the original dress so you guys can see!
