From November thru January of every year, I’m consumed with thinking about lace and sequins because of the holidays. But because I desire to wear that holiday look well beyond the few months in the year I generally stick with neutral colors. While searching for a lace, I came across this Anna Sui lace that’s simply perfect. It’s a medium weight with a lot of body……….perfect for a mini with movement. Despite the fact it’s lace, an underlining wasn’t necessary. It sews and cuts nicely but ironing is a bit of a challenge. And it’s currently on sale for 50% off so hurry.
The dress was made using vintage Simplicity 6219 with the following pattern alterations:
- Cut the front bottom half of the pattern at an angle
- Remove 6.5″ from the back pattern piece
- Added a 9″x 120″ pleated hem ruffle
