Doily Dress

I've still a lot to do but it is really coming along. I wove the "lace" (doilies) to form the top of the bodice but you can't see it all very well because it is white on white — the mannequin is white and the lack of contrast is a problem in the photo but not in life.
This one isn’t funny or a festival of finicky work like some of the other dresses. This one is just a vision realized; I had an impulse one day to do a dress like this. I was drawn to its texture that is hard to see in the photo, but I am very satisfied with it.
