Description

A red dress for the social media challenge. I decided to use the Lena Hoscheck design from the November 2016 issue Style 144. It’s a tea time dress, with sweetheart neckline and bracelet length sleeves.
I continue to be excited about the quality of Burda’s instructions these days. For this project, I had some lovely satin and stretch lace.

The bodice was pretty straightforward, I used my lace as an overlay. To allow free movement of the sleeve and less bulk, I only used the lace instead of overlaying that pattern piece. Some of the modification, I did was to slightly invert the sweetheart curve and add 2 inches to the waist. The original design had a gathered skirt, but I decided to add pleats to mine. I felt it was the best option because of the fabric. To me satin fabric always wants to be structured and formed vs draped and flowing.

All the drama in this dress has to do with the bodice and once you completed that its smooth sailing. I definitely feel that the glittery lace, made this dress dazzle along with those tiny buttons. All the hems were hand stitched for subtlety and neatness. RunningNStyle
