How are you doing on the Spring Palette Challenge?
This is my second garment, which I made in a white eyelet I’ve had for ages, lined in a light cream cotton, and finished with bias tape at the neckline. I was originally going to make it sleeveless, but decided short little sleeves would showcase the eyelet scallop border so nicely. I love the geometry of this fabric.
The black silk bow belt was something I uncovered in my stash of vintage sewing things, and I believe it came from my grandmother. It’s a wide silk ribbon and closes with a hook and eye underneath the bow. I was delighted to find it, since it works so well with the dress.
