Sewing in lace part three - basting

Things never go as planned. I didn't sew all Wednesday; I lay in bed all day with a slight fever and cold that still hasn't quite left me. I've done some sewing today anyway, but I'm not feeling so alert...

Anyway, the silk organza is basted to the silk satin crêpe.

The lace, not really behaving as I would like it to behave, is now hanging, and will hang there until Friday, my next sewing day. I think it need to stretch out before I attach it to the silk layers. I've decided to treat all layers as one.
Hanging lace vintage tulle dress |
Yes, that is a rather marvellous sky blue vintage evening dress in tulle. I've had it for a few years, but never had a chance to wear it. (It's not ombré; it's bad lightning ;) )


  1. So I strapped on my Birki's and pulled on my leggings and then the Mississippi Dress was complete. Standing staring at the ocean nearly bowled over by the wind. best sewing machine for kids

  2. Lovely! Sewing with lace takes some practice, but it is worth the effort.

  3. Lace, such as the elegant design of broderie anglaise, brings a touch of romance and femininity to any project
