I am SUPER proud of my latest creation! My boyfriend and I have been taking ballroom dancing lessons for a few weeks (we are THE WORST, but we have fun), so I finally have a reason to wear some of clothing I make. I was looking for some inspiration pattern-wise when I saw this one (it's V8908), and I fell in love. The best part is that it turned out exactly how I imagined!

I was really brave with this one. I've previously had bad experiences working with knit, but I just took my time, and that made all the difference. The Chantilly lace and knit are also separate fabrics that I basted together, so that added a lot of time and little bit of worry to the project. It ended up turning out just fine, though. The last step is to French tack the lining, but I actually love the look of the satin peeking out. What do you guys think? Does it look like it's meant to be that way, or should I tack it?





A friend of mine is dancing the Cha Cha in a showcase dance, and she wants me to make her one in red (I think I'll recommend black lace). I'm a little nervous, because I've never had to extrapolate a pattern before. But I think I know where to start. Wish me luck!

Very pretty and well-done! I especially like the effect of the satin peeking out, definitely looks intentional.  Cheesy

I had to click in to see this. It's really fun and flirty, and the satin peaking out works.

You guys are the best. Thank you! Haha, looking at these pictures again I was reminiscing about my long braid being a whip the guys were totally scared of every time I did a spin.
