Hmmm… Shiny! :)
Does anyone has extra foil lying around the kitchen drawers? You do not need to limit its use with the kitchen! See the dress I made? :)))
No, of course I’m not serious! This is just another gorgeous fabric that I’ve bought… Couldn’t resist the shiny color, how could I ?!…
Polka dots and childish dreams…

Defying the summer laziness…
I’ve been sewing like crazy since the start of my holiday but was too lazy to take photos of my projects. I then realize that it’s been only 2 posts this month so I rushed into taking photos at least for my final project.
Is it a curtain? No no, it’s a lace dress!
Tips for Sewing a Lace Dress:
- Since the fabric is very elastic, you should sew it like a jersey and use a jersey pin, if possible.
- When stitching the two pieces together, be very careful about the flexibleness of the fabric and pin the pieces carefully for avoiding slipping.
- Since you cannot sew it easily like a normal weight fabric, it gets very hard to close the side seams with overlocking. So I machine stitched them twice and cut the extra bits very carefully.
- Definitely KEEP your lace leftovers.You can use them in various other occasions later. I intent to share with you some of my ideas on that as well.
Lace skirt - I did it, I did it :)
I was adoring the lace skirts and dresses so much for so long! Finally I managed to sew one for myself. I could have sewed a loose fitting gauze and a chic and colorful facing inside (which is definitely on my to do list!) but I couldn’t find a good quality gauze fabric in the color of my liking yet. So I took the harder path and made a skirt with cotton lace bands…
