Its here again folks! This weekend is the annual Jazz Age Lawn Party in NY on Governors Island! Last year we went, and had a blast. I even had a gorgeous nearly mint condition vintage dress for the occasion, thanks mom!
This year I wanted to try another look, so when I stumbled across this Ann Taylor dress at Goodwill I saw serious potential.
It was a sample, never worn and I got it for under $10!
So once I had the dress I went looking for a bit of inspiration… and I found it next to my sewing station
My aunt gave me these old magazine prints years ago and I had them framed for my seamstress area. So, maybe a bit of antique lace could turn this sheath into a 30s stunner! I just so happen to have some 🙂
After laying out the lace properly, pinning in place, I got to work with delicate stitches so as yo not disturb the lovely satin
Here’s how it turned out!
A little lace goes a long way to making this dress special, and just in time for a Gatsby-like picnic in the park!
