Working with lace is rewarding. This lace pattern has some texture and doesn't fray so it's a breeze to easy with. And puckers don't show and move lace pieces around and there's no risk of it showing.
|This shows the top section of Beatrice.|
|The back pleat with a lovely lace back. I added this at the hemming stage.|
The bodice length is the same as the pattern but I've adjusted the darts to sit closer together.
The skirt hem has the scalloped edge of the fabric. I've used a fine cotton for the body of the dress.
While this is a pale off-white yellow colour, I've used a honey colour trim at the waistline.
|The pockets are kangaroo pockets.|
The kangaroo pocket are deep so I've cut them back by 2". I do that with all pockets.
I'll do the in real life photos this week but I got excited to have finished Beatrice today and just had to show you.
