'La dentelle de Calais' - Making use of my free lace!
My first sewing project since returning home from France was to make use of the free lace that I was given at the factory in Calais. I made this dress using the spare material from the corduroy skirt, and I thought a nice bit of lace was just what it needed! The dress is literally two identical pieces of fabric sewn together - I traced around my floral pinafore to get the shape right.
I made a little collar with the lace and sewed it on with a simple running stitch, and finished the look with some white buttons. Can't wait to wear the dress out!
