Lace and Neon

Added Apr 4, 2012

Do you like the neon trend? I was skeptical at first but decided to incorporate in one of my handmade creations:)

I added the neon piping to the seamlines. I initially had a different plan for this lace fabric. I was planning on making an I line dress with cut out back, but I saw a cute skater inspired dress in Japanese magazine, so I decided to go for that style.

The bodice is simple and fitted with princess seams. The skirt part is based on my Scallop Waist Skirt (free pattern download at Grosgrain blog). I added side in-seam pockets. The dress is fully lined. Since the lace had some stretch, I ironed on the fusible interface strips on curved seam lines to prevent it from stretching out.

I’ve already worn this dress five times – I love it! The bodice fits me like gloves. What makes this dress even more special is that it matches with my daughter’s dress.

    I’m not really into the neon trend but I like what you did with your dress. It’s subtle and adds a small pop of color instead of being very overbearing. So pretty!

    This is gorgeous! I like the neon but only if it’s used subtile like in your dress.
