I love Chuck’s style from Pushing Daisies. After narrowing her many gorgeous outfits down to the red lace dress, I decided to use vintage patterns Vogue 9810 for the top and Butterick B5708 for the skirt.

Very cute! I am a little paranoid about sewing with lace… but you did a great job!

Thank you! It was my first time sewing with lace and I was incredibly nervous. Turns out it isn’t much different than sewing with regular fabric! Go for it!
