The second thing I sewed is a new jsk:
When I saw the fabric I fell in love, and I always wanted to make a dress that is inspired by traditional western european costumes. The dirndl is probably the most known, but also in Switzerland, almost every municipality has its own local costume. The variety is immense, but the dresses are very conservative and they underlie strict rules, how and when to wear it, what fabric has to be used et cetera.
Nevertheless, they are a great inspiration.
It is the first time I lined a dress completely. Not because it is overly difficult, I just never had the motivation (^.-). But I must confess, it looks a lot more... what's the word? Serious?
In order to stick with the rustic design, I chose these corsage hooks for the lacing.
It took me ages to find decent lace in a nice chocolat brown! But I'm very happy with this one.
