I was thinking the same thing about the pattern--it's kind of unsatisfying in itself but that lace fabric transcends the perceived (by me) limitations of the pattern and takes it somewhere very special. Your experimentation with dying the lace fabric is interesting. It will probably open a whole 'nother world of possibilities when you start playing around with fabric/color in an underdress/slip-type garment. Lovely.

You've put a lot of time and thought into the construction of this garment. It's one of those pieces of fabric that you have to find just the right pattern for and I think you nailed it. Thanks for a very in-depth review of all you went through to construct something so beautiful and elegant.

This is super special-and when you sew or even buy and underdress, it will be a show stopper! Wonderful and very helpful review

Your dress is beautiful! Hope you do make the under-dress - it will be stunning. Wish the pattern were still available.

Was surprised to see the pattern NOVEL! You write such thorough reviews! Its likely nylon if it took the dye well. Polyester and acrylic wont take the dye unless in a blend and then the colour is pale. Many laces are made with nylon. Nylon usually takes dye well but sometimes in varying degrees. Eg my bras. Content is primarily nylon with some spandex. It dyes well but the stretch binding, hooks and elastics almost always have more saturation and come out darker. It must have something to do with how the nylon is made different type of nylon? Im among those looking forward to the under-dress. Cheers.
