I’m starting to feel like I might actually finish my never-ending pile of unfinished sewing projects.
This lace has been waiting to be used for a long time. Even though I only added a tiny bit on the shoulders I think it makes the dress. I left the edges unstitched since the chiffon was simply too delicate to stitch it onto.
When working with loosely woven lace and extremely slippery chiffon I can’t say I’d recommend using the narrowest possible bias tape like I did. It was worth the effort though! A narrow edge just looks so professional and is one of my favourite design features.
The design is loosely based on the Sandra Dress pattern.(
A fitted dress with a slit at front and back neckline. T-shirt sleeves. There is an invisible zip at side seam and button closure at back neckline. The yoke is lined for a neat and easy finish. Skirt is unlined.)
