Best Seat in the House
I've been dreaming of holiday dresses lately, and I treated myself to some outrageously decadent French chantilly lace, inspired by this Erdem number, as worn by Michelle Williams:
As for the dress, I've been working on the pattern. I draped a basic dress pattern and then made the design details by flat pattern-making. I'm working out the design and fit issues through a simple cotton version that's almost complete. I am so excited to start working with the lace!
You know who else can rock some red Chantilly?
P.S. I'll be back this weekend with a sew-along post or two!
