Remember this lovely image - it's actually a burda pattern for the cardi but I loved the lace skirt. So I had my eyes pealed and saw a similar fabric in Spotlight, and grabbed it. It is such a lovely piece of fabric that I was afraid to cut into it and so spent the month of July procrastinating and getting it out and putting it awayt!
But yesterday I decided to feel the fear and do it anyway!
Look - it's turned out just fine. I lined it with grey coloured synthetic fabric so that I was sewing a double layer. I didn't want the seams to show and the lace was slightly stretchyt and the lining was not! I also decided to do a wee embellishment on the waistband - a grey strip to break it up.
Lovely scalloped edge which graced the hem.
Detail at waistband.
Another invisible, invisible zip - now that I know to unzip the zip iron out the curl I can get it oh so invisible!
It's still winter here so I am putting it away so that I have something to wear for when it's gets warmer.
