Last week I was out fabric shopping and found this gorgeous stretch lace! I immediately fell in love and although it doesn't really scream Autumn, how could I resist?
I had this pattern laying around from the summer and it's an old favourite. I had a tank top that fit me really well and I just traced it out on tissue paper and extended the length to make it a dress pattern. It's a really simple process and I will write  a future post explaining exactly how it's done. 
This dress was made using my Singer ProFinish Serger and my Singer Fashion Mate Sewing Machine. I sewed the lace and the lining as one with this dress as I find I get a much better result.
Here is the final product!
I added a chunky crochet scarf and a belt in an attempt to make this more fall appropriate. Who says you can't wear white after labour day?

The Lace was $6.65
White knit lining was $4.50 

This dress took me about 40 minutes from start to finish and the final cost of the dress was $11.15

What a beautiful dress! I would really appreciate a tutorial. I don't have a serger, but I have a sewing machine with an overcast stitch. The neckline and armholes are so perfect on your dress - with no facing! How did you do that? I always walk by the lace fabric in stores because I think it will be too hard to sew. Maybe not? Thanks for your inspiration!

This dress looks very beautiful and the design looks amazing. I am glad that I have seen it and I will share this to my friends as well. A post for all of the women out there and this dress will be a good option to consider as well. Thank you for this reading.

Thank you for sharing this post with us, I am working in Uma and Leopold as a Fashion Designer. The Lace dress has fallen in and out of favor with many women due to poor quality, scratchy lace being all that was available for many years, unless spending hundreds on a key piece. With many softer lace fabrics available for now, they are not only comfortable to wear but extremely beautiful and feminine.
