Happy Homemade Sew Chic has patterns for two dressy dresses. These are still simple dresses, mind you – no one has time for anything fancy with the end of the world coming and all. Tunic Dress with Lace gives you options to dress is up or not.
Three pattern pieces, plus a bias strip. That’s it. The pattern recommends cotton double gauze. I’d never worked with it before. I bought some off the Internet, imported from Japan.
Much of the double gauze I found for sale comes in pastels and juvenile prints. This was a more sophisticated look – chambray blue with a gold bamboo motif.
Problem is, I can’t find any nice 3-inch wide lace for the neckline to go with this. All the gold lace I saw was garish metallic stuff. So I will go without for now.
