Lace debut

I must admit, I just love lace. For me it's a very feminine fabric that can upgrade every make. Back when I started sewing I wanted to make some girly clothes that would fit my body, since the ones from stores usually were poorly made or did not fit at all. As soon as I saw this golden lace I fell in love and imidiately started workig on my first lace project.

I've got all of the supplies as a Christmas gift around 5-6 years ago, specifically for pattern #106 from Burda Magazine 12/2012. I really liked that pattern as soon as I saw it and it was also a chance to have matching skirts with my cousin. I was quite stressed about sewing with lace, cause it was my first time doing it, but most of it went fine. I only needed some help with the waistline. What I really like about the pattern is the fact that I had to insert a zip only to the lining layer. For the lace layers I added few snaps. The only thing I would change is a different shape of the lining - currently it's a basic skirt, but a gathered rectangle or circle would've been better for a 14-year-old.

Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to wear this skirt anymore. The lining is just too fitted right now and sitting or walking up the stairs is very uncomfortable. I may re-do it, but I'm not sure if I actually want to. It might be one of the first me-made clothes that I've grown out of.
