AnneM - thanks for the note about the photo. I fixed it.

Pretty, and I love the lace. I can't see the enlarged version of your final pic, though - it is going to your layout picture.

I think I have this pattern, too! Thanks for reviewing a successful project and inspiring me!

JudiBee2 - I dyed the elastic with Dylon die. The package is enough to do several pounds of fabric so I just put about a tablespoon of dye into 4 cups warm water with some salt. Let the lace sit in it for about an hour and then rinsed it off. I wish I'd used a little more dye for a darker color but this one came out OK.

Very nice. I have it too. I made the panties and the camisole. I am glad to have these old patterns, before all gone. I bought mine at Joann's. How did you dye the elastic?
