Have not commented or posted for a while but I’m keeping an eye on what is posted and must say that I feel very inspired by the work shown here. Anyway, thought I´d share my latest vintage style sewing with you. I made a version of the sultry sheath dress from Gerties new book for better sewing to wear at my sisters wedding. Its the first lace dress for me and I love how it turned out. The location is the island Hållö in Bohuslän, Sweden and it was such a beautiful day!

Thanks! Lace looks so nice and it was easier to work with than I expected.
