Lace & Bleu Denim Skirt......


Welcome to my Fashion Friday post!  I have been sewing with lace & denim this week...do lace & denim go together?  I think so, it makes for a feminine edge type of look.  I have always loved lace and have an appreciation for seamstress's that make beautiful dresses & gowns with it!



For my design I started by looking at different types of lace at the fabric store and was surprised as there were some beautiful  floral lace that looked modern but I ended up choosing this circle lace that I liked as soon as I saw it.
 I already had the denim from my Bleu Denim Dress and I made a straight skirt with a side zipper this time.  This denim skirt is the underlay to the lace so it is a simple skirt. 



For the lace skirt I was a bit nervous cutting into such fine fabric but I used the circles on the lace as a guide along with my own pattern to keep the cut straight.
This lace is a medium weight lace so it is actually feels warm when worn with the denim if that makes any sense at all!

I had to sew this a bit slower on my machine because the lace was a bit thicker than most of the lace I have seen or sewn with.

This is what I found looking for inspiration this week!
This gorgeous Denim Dress!

I made a baptism dress for one of my daughters, it was white satin, with white lace on the bottom half of the dress. I sewed a white ribbon on the bottom of the lace. I swear it never looked even to me. Finally, I called a friend who sewed wedding growns, and I was informed lace is never even for hems. Man, that was I happy to hear that. I don't think I will EVER sew with lace like that again. Yours turned out fantastic.

The lace fabric is TDF and your idea of using denim as underlay is genious!
