I've had this pink lace for absolutely yonks. My Nan gave it to me (was a gift from someone else, I think) and it's just sat around doing nothing since then. It has been one of those fabrics which has just stumped me - it's pretty, but it's also crazily scratchy which makes me really not want to use it for clothes, and I really don't need any more cushions at this point.
So here's some photos of me using it as an overlay on this cute dress.
The pattern is Sew Over It's Betty dress. The modification I wanted to make was to not have a full circle skirt, but a 3/4 instead; since I'd like to wear this dress to work, full skirts are a little too much for me, but I still like the retro style of a fuller skirt. Also because my fabric was only 112cm x 200cm, I didn't think I'd be able to get a full circle skirt out of it.
I'd drafted a 3/4 circle skirt using Miss Make's Tutorial, and did it wrong. It's a good tutorial, I am just terrible at maths. So I recruited my housemates for help. One created a spreadsheet for me to use, and I drafted another 3/4 and a 1/2 circle skirts for good measure. And got it wrong. My housemates were re-recruited, and I finally have a working pattern. Which I will use later. And maybe write a tutorial on. Would you be interested in that? Let me know below!
