Delicate Lace Dress

Added Sep 8, 2013

Hi, this dress features a round neckline with princess seams in the back and front. I used one of my patterns for the top and drafted a slightly gathered bottom for the skirt using a rectangular block. The front is lower than the back giving it an high-low look.

I used a beautiful semi-sheer lace which is very delicate to work with and I used interlock as the lining. The sleeves are from Feb 2009 issue of the magazine #119 which are gathered sleeves. A zipper is at the side.

It is my first time working with this type of lace as it is a little stretchy and I really like how it came out nicely :-)

I wore it out and I feel extremely stylish and chic. Happy Me

    The dress is beautiful, I like how you paired it with dark blue belt and shoes. I wasn’t sure about those sleeves when I saw them in Burda, but your version is really nice and suits the fitted dress.
