To invest... or not to investWhen you are going for a lace anything that is going to be reserved for a special occasion (a dress, a coat), I think your best bet is to have it tailor-made, because good-quality lace items are usually very pricey and difficult to fix if they do not fit perfectly (for instance, you cannot fix the hem length if the scalloped part of the lace has been used - as it should have been). So, you are better off choosing a cut that is perfect for you and your own fabric and have it made to measure. Also, it will be immesurably cheaper.
Your inspiration can even come from something you like from an un-affordable brand: you can buy it, take it to and have it replicated by a professional and then return it intact (labels in place of, course, never worn, and within the time limit).
|Sometimes You Just Want to Go Crazy by Caroline Grant. Sometimes you just want to let your hair down and dance the night away. It's been quite a while for me... I made a friend when I was at university with whom I love going out dancing until early hours in the morning. I've never had so much fun in my life... everybody should have a friend like that, who makes you also fun! [Style: Urban Woman].|
