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 ?!…
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!
SEWING AN EASY LACE DRESS
This was a project that I’ve been dying to start for a very long time. I have made a skirt version of it some time ago.
(for investigative personalities it is Lace Skirt, I did it!)
While the workload gets more and more, I had been daydreaming about my new sewing project for days. I then decided to make a lace dress since - I assumed - it would finish in a very short time.
I was right. I finished sewing this dress in 30 minutes! Sewing a lace dress was indeed easy, but you have to be very careful in styling it; ‘cause you may end up looking as if you wrapped around your curtain before going out! :P The pattern I used for this dress was from BurdaStyle Magazine issue 03/2012 no. 102. The only alteration I made was reducing the size of front and back patterns from the middle ‘cause it’s quite a loose cut pattern.
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…
