Plaid dress with lace and gathers

Added May 26, 2013

Athens, Greece






Whenever I loose my sewing mojo I go to my stash and search for something plaid!! Plaid goes with gathers and gathers go with lace.
I had a mustard lace in my stash and decorated the dress with it…when I finished the dress was a little boring so I decided to put white lace to lighten it up. I didn’t remove the mustard lace yet…so tell me please:
What should I do? 1. leave both or 2. remove the mustard lace or 3. remove the white lace?
The pattern is model 128 from burda issue 05-1998.

Material Notes

plaid fabric, white and mustard lace.

    you are so creative. I think that we have many things in common : the Burda models and the cats. Your dress is so nice and the kitten very cute. I have one cat (a male) He is alway close to me when I sew

    OMG!! What a cuttie companion you have. Gorgeos kitten! The dress looks fantastic, Liliv. Don’t change anything. We can find so many checked fabric garments everywhere that I, sometimes, find them boring at least they have a remarkable style or an eye-catching detail. And let me tell you that your dress have both. The style of the dress is beautiful, love the frill hem and more overall I just love how both laces lighten up the checked fabric and give the elegant touch to the garment.

      Oh, thanks so much Helguchi, I’m glad you like the double lace detail. I liked it too, but I was afraid that it would look weird. The kitten is my new love, he is visiting me everyday, I can’t get him out of my legs!

      I have tons of clothes Mary!! And tons of fabrics as well! It’s really an addiction! Now for the cats: I adore them! Of course I will keep this little adorable kitty, but at the garden, not inside my house because he will be fighting all the time with my other one.

    I think I like it as it is Liliv! (I also like/love your little smudge cat! So cute!) I rarely sew with plaids and after seeing this I am wondering why! Good work!

      Good for me dear BeeZee, I won’t have to undo all this painful handsewing! The cat is not mine, it’s an outdoor kitty but it is so cute and friendly!…..I think I’ll take it. Thanks girl and happy sewing!
