In my collection fabrics, I picked up 8 yards of this gorgeous Raspberry colored embroidered lace without knowing exactly what I was going to do with it. I toyed with the idea of making several high-waisted knicker sets with matching bras, a typical babydoll style, etc but these ideas never seemed quite right for this lace. It wasn't until I came across this amazing vintage 1940's Dressing Gown Pattern that I just knew I had to use the entire 8 yards to make this. It came out gorgeous - wide 40's sleeve, pointed lapel collars, waist tie to cinch in at the tiny spot, floor length sheer, naughty lacy goodness. You won't get to see what it looks like on until I shoot the collection in its entirety but my oh my, it is a lovely piece! xx.L
