Custom Order-Lace Applique Dress

I was contacted by a woman here in Lakeland to make a custom dress in only 2 weeks. I was up for the challenge, and accepted. I was happy to be highly recommended by my local fabric store, Hancocks. 

She had this picture of Karlie Redd on her phone, and said she wanted it just like it, but in black lace. 

The lace was the most difficult to find, and especially stressed because of time, I went to every fabric store I could to find the most perfect lace that could be cut out and strategically applied to a nude mesh.

I found the lace, of course, at sewing studio-maitland, fl. I also picked up this awesome tee they made. 

I got to work on the nude mesh pattern first, and then started tediously cutting out the lace from the mesh lace fabric. 

Spent way too much time cutting the lace out for the amount charged. I needed to hand sew the lace on all around the bust, and machine stitched every where else. 

The lace was placed all over the front,and two lines going down center back, and only three pieces above elbow, cuffs around the wrists, and dripping down unto the skirt.

The contrast of the lace on the mesh is more noticeable in black on nude, than white on nude, so I'm glad we went with black lace. My customer wore to a little black dress party, and I'm sure was 'best dressed'.
