Description

Made by adapting New Look 6699 to be a long A-line dress, with Italian lace hand-stitched around the midriff. The invisible zip closure has been switched to the left side seam so the back is not interrupted by a centre seam, which would have spoiled the look of the lace. The back bodice pieces have been modified also to be just one-piece, rather than the sundress-y look with buttoned shoulder straps of the original pattern.
I have more details about the pattern adaption here; http://handmadebycarolyn.blogspot.com/2010/11/dress-with-er-lace.html

Material Notes

nubbly linen/cotton for the skirt and midriff, silk crepe for the bodice, Italian lace, invisible zip, black cotton for the bias-cut hong kong seaming and bias-cut hemming strip
