Project Runway Inspired DIY Metallic Red Lace Dress

Hello everyone,

It’s Thread It Thursday!!!!




Photo’s c/o Pinterest

I’m excited to share my latest project with you. I have been obsessing over this dress for quite a while….even in my sleep…lol.  You know you really love something when you just can’t get it out of your head.  This dress is inspired by Project Runway Allstar’s Designer Sonjia Williams and Pinterest.

Now, all I needed to do was…… figure out how to get my vision to come to life. So I started looking online at dress patterns. I found one that might work, but it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind. So, I kept searching and finally I came across what I was looking for.  Simplicity New Look Pattern 6225 View C.


To make this pattern into a dress, I simply added 12″ to the length. Since I used lace I did not hem the capped sleeves or the hemline. I created a dress using a red-ish silk fabric to go underneath. I simply used a sleeveless dress from my closet as the pattern. I have a tutorial here which shows the method. In the end, I was very pleased with how everything came together.

It’s nice to see inspiration and what you envision come to life. It feels like a dream come true.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

Happy Sewing & Until Next Time,

Sewloveable ☺
