My Projects

Leather and Lace evening Dress

Posted on September 28, 2011 at 10:30 PM


I'm so proud of what I did to this dress. Planning to make dress to wear at my husband's nephew in Green Bay since June but I've never touched it until Saturday Sept 4 - 2 days before leaving to US for the wedding, the family's 2011 golf tournament and my short trip to visit the Windy City - Chicago. What a trip!!! Anyway, let talk about my dress.

I had so many ideas for the dress, changed and changed and changed again both styles and materials also color choices. Until I started pick up the scissors I made the final change that used leather-look stretching lycra knit. Fabric was bought in the previous week which was pre-bonded silver knit - black lace which caught my eyes right at the first time I saw it. On sale ... wow ... $5/m (60" width) I bought 2m but used only 1.2m.






Bust was fully lined to insert bust foam, and has the leather fabric around the edges so I could fold it to outside a bit to show the contrast (as seen in the photo) or kept it as original so that edges will look more curvy. The back looks more charming than I thought.



Big hit for the night with this dress for sure. I loved it and Everyone loved it  also :). 

Last minutes before going to bed on Sunday night - actually 1:30AM Monday morning I got my little wrist bag done with embellishment pieces for my slingback sandals. Gotta love those too. 



I hope you like these too. It's just more than just sewing. I worked so hard in 10 hours to finish from head to toes - fully lined dress, invisible zipper. And obviously Pay it off.... what do you think? 



I did hand-sequenced little glitter black round sequences on the bows, along gathering shoes' pieces and on center bust. Really they are so tiny , may not shown clearly on photos. Oh well, doesn't matter , does it :)
