Lace is a big trend this season. They offer lace dresses, skirts etc. in various colors. Thus, nobody will have a difficulty to find her favorite color or a color that suits her well. My absolute favorite color for lace is black. For my money a lace item has to be black like this dress below.
Actually, I got this dress at a swap. The previous owner had hardly worn it, actually I know her well and I had never seen her in that dress. If I understood it right it was for a special occasion. When I saw the dress I thought that it would be perfect when I shorten the underlining to create some mystery around my legs. Thus, when I came home I could not wait to do the measurements to get it just above the knee, do the cutting and sewing. I really liked the outcome.
When I wore the dress and the previous owner saw what I had done to the dress, she wondered why she never had the idea. I asked her whether she would like it back. She said swapped it swapped, you keep it. Very generous, I think. I hope you like the outfit. Unfortunately, I did not have the idea to take a photo about how it looked before.
