DIY body suit and lace dress

I’m always asked the question “Do you ever get rid of the clothes you make?” and the question is generally yes with the exception of my favorite pieces.  This dress falls into my favorite pieces category. It’s simply one of those dresses I will never get rid of.  Over time I may alter it, but it’s a keeper.

When I originally wore it, I added a tube dress under it and wore it to a more conservative Christmas party.  This holiday season, I wore it to a party party and paired it with my new body suit.

I was definitely concerned about being too naked, but oddly enough I didn’t feel exposed.

The bodysuit was made using vintage Kwik Sew 2211 and this heathered jersey.
