I bought this fabric back in March for my birthday. I have been putting off making anything with it because the weather where I live has been less than springlike. Well, the weather hasn't gotten any better, but maybe now that I have a new dress to wear it will get warmer
I fell in love with this print the second I saw it but didn't really know what to make until just recently. I ended up making a Lolita style one-piece dress since I had never made one before and I wanted to try it! The lace looks kind of black in the pictures, but I actually dyed it a dark brown.
Here are some pictures of the details:
Close up of the lace on the sleeve
Close up of the bow and waistband
The back shirring
How the waistband attaches
The lace at the hem. The lining doesn't peek out at all when the dress is worn, only the lace.
The dress inside out.. Almost fully lined. I wasn't sure how to do the sleeves at first, but since I made this I think I have figured it out.
Close up of the shirring lining.. I definitely need to get more serger colors, so that the inside looks nicer!
