Jersey/Lace Dress

I wanted to try this McCall pattern #7538, but since I didn’t have it, I made my own version. I have combined three different fabric; viscose jersey, stretch lace and bright orange sport stretch underneath the lace. Since the fabric is stretchy it was not necessary with a zipper. I had to neaten the lace to the sport stretch before sewing it together with the other pieces. I’m very happy with the result :)

    Loving the vibrant citrusy splash, and the interplay with the lace my friend, so lovely a look xx

    What a beautiful dress! I like the idea of “crisscrossing” the lace. A happy dress indeed!

    Wow! What a great colour! And good on you for making your own pattern. I would find that a bit daunting with different kinds of fabrics with different kinds of stretch but you pulled it off beautifully. Lucky we can see each others projects btw. I posted my silver dress on 14th and still no show in the project section. Burda must be having some serious problems :-(

    Beautiful dress Ellen and I love the colour. You did a cracking job combining the 3 fabrics without a pattern and it looks fab on you x

    Ellen, this is lovely. Did you dye the fabric to make the colours match so well?

      Thanks Teeny! The jersey and the lace are very similar color, but if you could look closer you would see the bright orange color underneath the lace, but I think that makes it very nice :)
