So I’ve got a kind of complicated dress situation–there’s a family lace overlay I’ll probably wear, but it’s antique and I don’t want to wear it for the reception (BBQ and antique ivory lace do NOT go together). I’ve picked out a plain ivory satin dress for an underdress, but I’d like to dress it up for the reception (and be able to wear it if something happens to the antique lace). And the shoes I fell in love with are sort of a dusty, sparkly champagne. So I’m thinking about wearing a bolero and making my own sash to go with.
I’m not an expert seamstress, but I’ve sewed a few skirts and things like that in my time (RenFaire stuff). Has anyone tried making their own sash or other dress accessory? Any suggestions/recommendations?
