A simple pink lace dress
I used (modified) Simplicity 2584, a simple sheath dress with bust darts at the side seams. It's out of print but other basic sheath dress patterns would also work - I preferred this one over something with vertical waist darts, for this lace project. Darts in lace can get a little messy!
I modified the pattern by not giving it the slit down the front, and by cutting the sleeves shorter. I also gave it an interlining of the pink cotton, so at the neck I made a neck facing using this technique.
The lace up close. (Seriously, what's it called?!)
lining fabrics vs. interlinings, and what to make with lace that isn't too bridal!)
I guess it's kind of inspired by these simple sheath lacy dresses!
I like the length and fit on my version! The joys of making your own clothes.
