Inspiration - Lace Dresses3:30 PM
I'm not often one to follow trends but, I have to admit, I can't help but to give a little grin when I see that the newest "it" look just happens to fall in line with my plans.
This morning I received an email from Bloomingdale's that gave me one of those little grins. Apparently, lace dresses are one of the looks for fall. Fantastic! I made one last year but, as I mentioned during Me-Made-May, it doesn't get much wear, owing to it's bridal color. I do like the idea, however, so for the last month or so, I've been working on a plan for a new one. I've purchased the lace and the base fabric. Now, I just need the dye and a few notions. I'm really hoping to get this one whipped up before we move.
In the meantime, let's drool over some of the latest designer offerings, shall we?

|ML Monique Lhuillier Strapless Dress|
A little glamour anyone? So not a practical dress (for me anyway!) but, I think the way they achieved the look is interesting. This is actually a very simple strapless gown. To make it unique, wide strips of lace were added to a black tulle overlay.

And finally, I couldn't help throwing this piece in:

*To sleeve, or not to sleeve? I'm constantly going back and forth over whether or not to add sleeves to my own lace dress. Care to weigh in?
What do you think? Will you be jumping on the coming season's lace trend?
Happy sewing! x
