The Making of a Lace Jenny Skirt


This month I was in such a colorful mood. I found myself gravitating towards this bright, textural orange lace with its organic pattern of swirling leaves and flowers, from Mood Fabrics. I really wanted to have some fun with color by pairing the orange with an equally vibrant hue. After a very circuitous path, I ended up choosing this blue double-faced wool from Mood to partner with the lace. Since this experience marks my first time to truly work with lace, I chose a pattern I had successfully made in the past: BurdaStyle’s Jenny Basic Skirt. It’s a classic, and I wanted to be able to focus on the fabric without any pattern hiccups!

(This dress is based on the 1920s Louisa Drop-Waist Dress master pattern, as shown here in an abstract silk charmeuse.)
