Lavender skirt update
I might just have a fabricgasm. Or something. This lace went on SO much easier than I expected.

The silk duponi is cut on the bias, which worried me, but it didn't distort like I expected it to and the lace sat sweetly to be sewn. I wish I knew how to get the color right, because the fabric is LOVELY.



The lace is 2.75" wide. For reference the pattern I am using is Here





Three posts in one evening. So what?

I gotta say, that icon is totally hypnotic.

:) I do hope so. That's a lot of really gorgeous fabric wasted, otherwise. *wimper at the thought*

The skirt is cut on the bias? I prefer that- I love the way it hangs and drapes on an a-line.

That fabric *is* lovely, and the lace is pretty damned cool, as well.

Post as many times as you want!

The two ruffles are cut on the bias and the overskirt is, too. The underskirt is the only straight cut part of the skirt.


The picture is of the bottom ruffle. As for the lace, I got that from cheeptrims.com. That is one dangerous place to surf, let me tell you!

I see.. I hadn't noticed the link to the pattern until after I'd made my comment- I can see why you're a little nervous, but truly, I think that with that fabric, it will come out stunning. Very excited to see the finished product!

One of my friends recently made a wedding dress for an other friend out of almost the same dupioni, as well as some silver. It's just such a lovely shade... Are you making a corset top to go with it?

I am almost done. Just have to put the waistband in! Better eat first, so I don't screw up....


Not enough fabric left to make a corset. :( But I think my black and white polka dot one will look stunning with it. I think. I hope.
