The party dress

Tracy wanted to make herself a dress for her brother in law’s 50th birthday party.  Looking through her ‘huge’ stash she found a beautiful metre of black lace and 2 metres of a striking blue georgette – both bought on impulse and left unused!

It didn’t take long before she had the perfect dress….

Tracy used the Mortmain bodice    images

 

and the Ruby circular skirt   ls2image_2

 

layering the lace over the blue fabric just on the bodice…

She chose the circular skirt as she wanted it to stand out slightly so she also made up her own net underskirt….

They had a great time at the party and Tracy received many compliments on her dress – and was delighted when people asked where it was from and she was able to say those words we love….’I made it myself!’

and the prize for best dressed on the night goes to  –  my mate Tracy!
