*Daydream Sewing is similar to Fantasy Sewing, I think, but with a slightly greater chance of fulfillment…maybe?
I was on Style.com going through some photos from designers Fall 2012 runway collections and saw this from Valentino.
Gorgeous, right? I got to thinking about lace dresses. I have a blue lace that I bought while in California in April.
I have hesitated in starting any plans for it because I wasn’t sure I wanted a full blue lace dress. I know I don’t want a lace skirt or another lace blouse.
Once I saw the Valentino I got to thinking that I could make a dress with princess seams using lace for the centre (and back?) pieces and a crepe fabric for the sides.
Carolina Herrera crepe dress with plunging lace centre. This is just to show the crepe with lace. I want more lace than this.
A dress pattern that I have that has princess seams is this one.
My Garden Party Dress. Could I use my blue lace for the centre and use a solid blue crepe-type fabric for the sides? Will it look silly? I feel like the crepe has to be an exact match for colour or completely different. But I don’t want it to look like 2 dresses sewn together. I love the Valentino with the satin but, seriously, if I don’t have a place to wear a full lace dress, do I have somewhere to wear a satin and lace dress?!
No decisions made yet. Just a few ideas floating around.
What do you think? Am I way off with this idea?
