Annice saw a dress to wear to the September wedding in Zara we have been invited to…… Sadly it didn’t go up to her size!!
Mmmm, what to do………..? Would you like me to sew you one? And she actually said YES!
Here it is modelled to perfection!
The original dress was from Zara Kids and came with lilac lace. As we could not find any lilac we chose a lilac tana lawn and zip from Calico Laine and some Guipure Lace from White Tree Fabrics
The dress is from Simplicity 1479 version B. I then created a lace top which is joined at the neck to the other dress. I used bias binding on the sleeves of the lilac dress and also on the lace. As the lilac is very thin I added a satin underskirt which was joined at the dropped waist.
The decorative zip was very easy to sew in!
