I made this baby twice a) because I had enough fabric and b) because I LOVED the motif. I mean, it's not like you've never seen black lace and pink/cream fabric before, but it screams sexy-chic rich lady to me. And who doesn't like dressing with that in mind?? I did one longer version and one shorter. The shorter one, which I made second, was much better constructed because I'd come to terms with the (insanely difficult) fabric at that point.
Pros: The very high-end lace works perfectly and the fabric feels incredibly luxe. The colour scheme is most appealing.
Cons: The longer (first-made) slip suffered through a lot of construction-challenges because the tricot simply DID NOT want to accept the stitches. Oh, I worked with a ball point needle and I adjusted the tension numerous times. I practiced on scraps. I changed stitch length and width. I did all the right things. It wasn't till I went with a totally bizarre stitch (that prob shouldn't work on stretch fabric, but did) that the problem was resolved. I don't know that my machine - or maybe my skill level - was optimal with this fabric. Nonetheless, here they are!
And here's are a few more pretty, pastel gratuitous shots of slip porn!
