I totally blew off last week's Fashion Plate. Sorry about that. This week, I'm taking ModCloth's No Business Like Snow Business as my inspiration for a holiday-themed dress. Should you be so daring as to wear white to a holiday party, grab a copy of Simplicity 4070 and a couple/few yards each of this stretch cotton sateen (gawd I love that stuff) and this white floral lace from fabric.com and swiftly put one of these dresses together! I used the bodice pattern for my apron and it went together very smoothly. I did adjust the bust lines slightly from the pattern, but that was easy to simply mark on the fabric and stitch along my markings.
If white isn't your thing, here's a red combo:
|Red stretch cotton sateen|
|cherry stretch lace|
