This is a dress for a most beautifull 17 years old girl. It is not what I am used to do, because this is a dress made in a day including the pattern. Just so so simple, but I think that very nice for a special evening. I wash the cotton lace before making it, and…thanks God!!!! it shrank so much!!!! and the lining is a gold like lurex type of fabrick that I was able to get in a retail store and that was the last piece, It has a princess cut and I work the 2 materials toguether, and left a bit of lthe lace alone on the hem line so there is the same transparency that in the unlined sleeves. Finishes where done with a simple cotton lace by the yard, and….that was it!!!! the neckline at the front and back has been treated like a swiming costume, with elastic to keep everything in place and has no facings. It really came out nicer that I spect it,!!!!

    Love the simplicity of it! I admire your ability to work with less complicated projects as well as the really fussy ones. You should design dresses for the Academy Awards. I’d watch the show just to see your creations.

      Thank you vji!!! but belive me, when my client came with the lace……I could cry…….It look so cheap, stiff and ruff….did not like it at all, but once I washed it came softer and nice, and with the gold lining….I think that made the difference too!!!

      Thank you elgin, I am glad that you like it!!! and yes, I am happy I washed it, and also it was a bit stiff, so I left it in softener for 1/2 day and it came out with a very nice texture too!!!

    Love the gold lining. It gives such an edge to the lace. Great job Adriana! Your sewing is so neat, you should be an example for everyone.

    Wow! But only you Adriana can make something ‘so simple’ look so absolutely stunning. Gorgeous lace and amazing low back. Am wondering how the bra thing works or not… she is 17 after all!

      Thank you janene!!! in this case….she does not even needs a bra. If I had made this one for an older woman, I will have put cups in a small lining inside…..but this is for a bust that is in the right place!!!! jajajaja
