16 Mar MSN / Face the Lace
I’m still here at the resort.
Lots of news at the Mood Sewing Network!
For starters, Mood has added four new bloggers to the network bringing the total to twelve.
Lori from Girls in the Garden
Lauren from LLadybird
Peter from Male Pattern Boldness
Haley from Threaded
I applaud Mood for continuing to expand the Network with creative diversity. Each of the eleven other MSN bloggers offers a unique style of photography, writing, sewing, fashion and overall character, providing ongoing inspiration to me and hopefully you!
Did you know during the month of March, the MSN bloggers (minus the 2 newest) have accepted a lace challenge?
You can read more about it HERE on Carolyn’s post (Diary of a Sewing Fanatic).
The NY bloggers were sooooooo helpful photographing lots of laces from Mood.
Several of the bloggers have already completed and posted their lace garment. Lauren made a dynamite red dress, Oona a brilliant chartreuse top and Amanda a stunning skirt.
Me? I’ve been ambivalent……… almost fretful!
Before you start thinking I don’t know how to enjoy a vacation, I want to assure you I’ve socialized and taken advantage of most of the amenities.
………but back to sewing and I need your help……..
I was planning to use this pattern from the Sew the Perfect Fit class, but after seeing the dress last week in a store I panicked. The dress is exquisitely constructed and is made from the heaviest lace I have ever handled. It also features a grosgrain waistband.
Perhaps I should sew a pattern I’m familiar with like the Cynthia Rowley Simplicity tunic pattern with white underlining.
Here is the lace with navy underlining for the Tory Burch inspired dress.
Here is the lace with white underlining for the Cynthia Rowley Simplicity tunic which would be trimmed in navy.
Yea or Nay?
I enthusiastically welcome all thoughts and advice on my upcoming challenge which I must decide in the next 24 hours.

I’m already feeling much better 🙂
