Very pretty dress! I love the petticoat look of the lining showing at the bottom.

What a beautiful dress! I like how the lining is peeking out from underneath.

Thank you for the lovely comments! I am really happy about the dress too. ReBecca, I used a generic black dye for natural fibers (a Swedish brand). It turned out really well. I think there is a small percentage of a synthetic weft in the lace because a few strands remained cream, but that really adds a certain luster to the black lace so it was just a bonus. Now I want to dye more lace, and experiment with different colors.

Beautiful dress. I think its great you died the lace the color you wanted, I tend not to consider that option.

I love the lace, and the clean lines of this dress. You will probably get so much use out of it!

This is a very pretty dress on you - I too like the way you made the lining longer than the dress

Great dress. It really suits you. I like the way you finished the lining longer than the dress.
