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!
This is my Fashion Friday project for this week!
