I did a rolled hem on the edge of the lace. It has a keyhole opening in the back. It does not show through very well but it is silver underneath the black lace.
Here is my dress.
|Pardon the tub of cat food.|
Obviously it is a skirt and top, not a dress. I was inspired by this outfit on pinterest
So tonight I have to make middle sister's dress. It is mostly cut out and I have already made it twice so I full expect to have it done tonight. Husband wants a tie made out of the fabric from my dress and I have no evening bag to carry. I am hoping to get both of those things accomplished Tuesday. Also, its going to be cold in Chicago. Mid-40's cold so I will try to find time to make some sort of cover up. I think I have about a yard of fabric left to do all of this. We'll see what I can accomplish!
Hopefully tonight, I'll be posting photos of middle sister's dress.
And I promise, to post photos of the three of us dressed at the actual wedding. My head included. I always cut it out because when I sew, I am generally in sweats or old jeans, unshowered, most definitely not made up and I just rapidly change into whatever I have made. Rest assured, I do have the usual parts above the shoulders and will include that in a photo soon.
