French Lace Evening Dress

Added Sep 10, 2013

by chanel2005

Sydney, Bass Hil...






I made this navy French lace dress to wear to my sister inlaw’s wedding. I hand beaded a velvet ribbon for the waistband with some purple beads, I just loved those purple beads and had to use them on this dress even if it didnt match but it looked good with the navy in the end.

Material Notes

French lace which I bought from Tessuti fabrics in Australia, they have the most amazing fabrics, every time I go there I fall in love again and again ( with the fabrics lol).

      I used a pattern I made at college and just altered it to the design I wanted.

    I’ve always seen sleeveless or short sleeves on lace dresses, but I love the lace long sleeves. It looks very flattering on you! _
