Ok, I know, this is super creepy, but there are only so many places in close proximity to our church building where me and my photographer-in-crime partner, Emily, can go on a Sunday morning! But its practically Halloween, so I'm just going with a theme here.
I don't know if I really had a vision dress for this month, except for maybe the corpse bride? Haha. I mostly just wanted to make something lacy, stretchy, and again, conducive to breastfeeding. Adding the scalloped black trim made it a little more Halloweenie than I anticipated, but it'd do.
I found this lace on my trip to NYC, rolled up and with a damaged seam the entire length of the bolt. I think it was originally $15/yard, but I haggled it down to 2.5 yards for $7.50!
I guess you can't even tell that there's a midriff piece and a skirt part to this dress. The middle was going to be just black, but everything I sew is an effort to lengthen my torso, and having the busty white top separated from the skirt wasn't helping.
