Description

Mena, the talented sewist and creative mind behind the Sew Weekly, asked if I’d like to participate in the Common Thread project. Each sewist participating would receive five yards of vintage ivory lace, to incorporate into a project of our choice, and share on the Sew Weekly site. The only rule was that the lace had to be visible.

So here’s what I made! A bold floral summer dress, using pattern Vogue 1174 with straps and lace instead of piping. I hand-picked the zipper and added padded bra cups for extra coverage.
